Theft Cases In Los Angeles Courts With An Experienced Criminal Defense Lawyer

In criminal law, theft is the illegal taking of another person's property without that person's voluntary consent. The word is also used as an informal term for some crimes against property, such as fruad, burglary, embezzlement, larceny, looting, robbery, shoplifting, and sometimes criminal or civil conversion. If you have been arrested or charged with a theft crime please call a professional criminal defense lawyer. In some circumstances early mitigation evidence can lead to dismissal, reduced charges, or alternative sentencing.
