Charged With a Theft Crime in Utah? Get the Right Lawyer on Your Side.
Even a misdemeanor conviction for theft or shoplifting on your criminal record can mean you won’t pass a background check for many types of jobs that require handling money or products. If you have been charged with a crime involving stolen property, including theft, shoplifting, embezzlement or fraud, the jail time you face might be only a part of the penalties you eventually face.
Free Consultation · Major Credit Cards · Competitive Fees · Former Prosecutor
Salt Lake City Theft attorney Steven K. Burton of the Salt Lake City law firm Intermountain Legal represents individuals charged with theft and property crimes throughout Northern Utah. As a former prosecutor, Steve knows what the prosecution is thinking when it prepares its case. If you are convicted of a theft crime, you may be sentenced to imprisonment, fines, probation, parole and community service. It may be of some comfort to know that most prosecutors don’t think that jail time is the best solution for society. Most would rather seek restitution and a penalty that does not include incarceration. There are many conviction set-aside programs that may be available. We will work until we find the solution that is right for you and your family.
Even Shoplifting Is a Serious Charge
Theft crime is a criminal act involving the taking or receiving of another person’s property without that person’s consent. The severity of criminal charges will depend upon several factors, including:
- The type of theft crime committed
- The value of the stolen property
- Whether you have a prior criminal record
- Whether you used a weapon
If you have been charged with a theft crime in Utah, you will need an experienced criminal defense attorney on your side. Intermountain Legal offers the extensive experience you can rely on.
