Sarasota & Tampa Grand Theft Lawyers
Florida Criminal Defense Attorneys
Grand theft is the theft of another person’s property, when that property is worth over $300. Grand theft auto is a form of theft, when a person steals a car; this is a common charge you may hear in Florida. Grand theft is a felony offense and is punishable by a state prison sentence of at least 1 year, the repayment of the value of property which was stolen, and more. If you are convicted, you will have a felony conviction on your permanent criminal record, affecting your future ability to find employment, obtain certain loans, and more.
Florida courts and law enforcement agencies take grand theft seriously. Grand theft, like any felony charge, requires a criminal defense lawyer who can defend your rights from the onset. For instance, working with a lawyer the instant you find you are suspected of grand theft (before you’re actually arrested) may result in the investigation being stopped. By cooperating with the police without a skilled attorney, you may unintentionally incriminate yourself during questioning or in allowing law enforcement to search your property when they do not have a warrant. Consulting with a Tampa grand theft lawyer now will improve your chances of your case or charge coming to a good conclusion – one that does not include you spending years in a Florida state prison.
