Theft Crimes

Tampa Criminal Defense Attorneys

There are a variety of theft-related crimes, including but not limited to:

  • Shoplifting
  • Employee Theft B Embezzlement
  • Obtaining Property for a Worthless Check
  • Failure to Returned Leased Property
  • Scheme to Defraud

If you are being investigated for matters that may lead to a theft charge it is important to have an attorney with you during the investigation so that you do not incriminate yourself. The criminal defense attorneys at Fernandez & have been successful in preventing prosecution by early intervention.

The penalties for a theft crime may be serious. The indirect consequences that come with an accusation can last a lifetime. Finding the right lawyer that can fight to protect your good name is important. The criminal defense attorneys at Fernandez & may be able to help you find a solution that doesn’t involve jail time and avoids a conviction. There are many ways to avoid a conviction like:

  • Pre-arrest Mutual Agreement
  • Diversion and Dismissal of the Charges
  • Pre-trial Motions to Suppress Evidence or Dismiss the Charges
  • Withholding Adjudication

There are ways to avoid an arrest for theft, and a civil lawsuit, by meeting with the parties early and reaching a mutual agreement. Do not speak with law enforcement officers unless you have consulted with a criminal defense attorney. If you have been accused of a theft offense, contact Fernandez & and address the issue before the State Attorney’s Office files formal charges.
