Get The Theft Lawyer You Need In Your Defense.
Those who have been accused of a crime against property could be facing misdemeanor charges or felony charges, depending on the extent of the damage and value of the property. If they are found guilty of the crime—even if they didn’t actually commit it—they may see sentences involving fines, community service, house arrest, probation and even decades of jail time.
Property Crime Categories
Crimes, those illegal acts committed by people, generally fit into three categories:
- Crimes against people
- Crimes against society and
- Crimes against property
The idea of a crime against property is something of a misnomer—since property must be either owned by a business, an individual, or a society, it seems like all crimes against property are really against the owner of that property. But this particular subset of crime is not so much about who the owner of the property is, but what the property is worth and what kind of crime was committed.
Lawyer Referral For Accusations of Crimes Against Property
No matter how clear you think your innocence is, if you’ve been accused of committing a crime against property, it’s vital that you retain experienced representation from a lawyer who has defended cases like yours in the past. This is the only way for your innocence to be properly and powerfully displayed before the court, to help with their finding of innocence.
Remember, in the United States justice system, people are wrongly imprisoned all of the time. In fact, every year the number of people who are exonerated of crimes they didn’t commit, but were found guilty of, rises.
