Fighting Theft Charges
The best strategy for fighting a theft crime varies according to the unique circumstances of each case. In some situations, our Visalia theft crimes lawyer has been able to show that the prosecutor's evidence is not sufficient to prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt, challenging evidence in court, and working to either have a case dropped or win a verdict of not guilty.
In other cases, the prosecution has overwhelming evidence that a defendant did commit the theft crime. In these cases, it may be possible to negotiate with the prosecutor or judge to have the charge reduced or dismissed. This can prevent you from having a permanent criminal record. Particularly when it is a first offense, it may be possible to have charges dropped, if the defendant repays the victim and completes theft counseling or community service.
Our Visalia Criminal Defense Attorney Can Help
Hayden Smith begins by investigating the case to determine whether the prosecution has sufficient evidence and then works to either have the case dismissed, charges reduced, or challenge evidence in court. Our clients receive personal attention and guidance through every phase of your case.
