Types of Theft Cases We Handle

We understand that you may have questions or concerns about your future and we can guide you throughout this difficult time. If you have been arrested for any theft crime, do not hesitate to work with Rudenberg and Glasser, P.A. immediately.

Our office can provide you with representation if you have been charged with:

  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Home invasion
  • Shoplifting
  • Grand theft
  • Petty theft
  • Credit card theft
  • Identity theft

In most theft cases, in order to prosecute an individual, substantial evidence against the offender will be needed. Law enforcement officials may try to obtain evidence in ways that violate your rights. If you are under investigation for theft, we can help protect your rights and your future.

Penalties Involved with Theft Offenses

  • Misdemeanor of the second degree: Up to 60 days in jail and a fine of $500.
  • Misdemeanor of the first degree: Up to 1 year in jail and a $1,000 fine.
  • Felony of the third degree: Up to 5 years in prison no more than a $5,000 fine.
  • Felony of the second degree: Up to 15 years in prison and a $10,000 fine.
  • Felony of the first degree: Up to 30 years to life in prison and a $10,000 fine.

Other penalties can include community service, probation, and banishment from certain facilities or stores. The severity of the penalties often depends on the amount of property or valuables stolen, as well as the means by which the property was stolen.

What Are Civil Damages?

More than just criminal penalties, theft offenses can also include civil penalties. If the store owner, individual, or company you committed theft against wants to pursue civil damages, they have the right to do so. What does this mean? On top of the other penalties, the “victim” of the theft could demand payment for $200 or three times the damage amount. If the offender does not pay within 30 days, they may be sued for civil damages. While these threats are not always carried out, it is important to retain a skilled theft crime attorney who stands up for your rights during this time. Rudenberg and Glasser, P.A. is here to defend your future and your freedom. Trust your theft crime case to us!
