Facing Theft Crimes Charges in Utah? Time is NOT on Your Side.
When you or someone you care about is accused of theft, the consequences can be devastating. People forget that you’re innocent until proven guilty, and may immediately stop trusting you. If you do wind up with a guilty conviction, the consequences can be exponentially worse. You may face time in jail or prison. You’ll likely have to pay fines and restitution. And, once the nightmare is over, you may never again be eligible to work in a position that requires bonding or that involves money handling or finance. That’s why you need Weber Law. We understand the implications of theft crimes charges and will mount an aggressive legal defense to have the charges dropped or reduced.
He did everything he could to solve my case. There was no moment where I felt like I was alone. He went to his full extent to help me lower my charges. Great lawyer”
Types of Utah Theft Crimes Charges
There are a variety of theft crimes in Utah, including:
- Communication fraud
- Check fraud
- Forged writing
- Retail theft
- Theft by deception
- Credit card fraud
- Welfare fraud
- Workers comp fraud
The punishments for Utah theft crimes can range from those associated with a Class B misdemeanor (up to six months in jail and fines of up to $1,000) to a second-degree felony (up to 15 years and prison and fines of up to $10,000). But that’s just the tip of the iceberg. A theft conviction can also mean paying restitution to the victim, paying additional financial penalties, and paying the victim’s court costs. If you’ve previously been convicted of Utah theft crimes, the stakes are higher than if your current arrest is your first.
Beating Utah Theft Crimes Charges
Weber Law uses creative and effective strategies to defend our clients accused of Utah theft crimes. While the defense we craft depends upon the specific charges, we might argue that you believe that you were entitled to the property, that you accidentally took the property, or that you didn’t have criminal intent. We might claim that the police arrested the wrong person, that someone with a grudge falsely accused you, or that you are simply innocent. Rest assured that we will tailor your defense to your circumstances.
If you are charged with a federal theft offense, you need to work with a criminal defense attorney who has experience in federal court. The federal court system has distinct procedures different to Utah courts, so you’ll need a lawyer who knows the rhythm of the federal system and how to achieve success in it.
