When a person takes property that doesn't belong to them, whether it is by force or other means, the crime is considered a theft. This charge may include crimes that involve fraud, robbery, shoplifting, and embezzlement, just to name a few. If a deadly weapon was used to commit the theft, or if a financial institution like a bank was the target, a conviction could be devastating.

First Degree Theft is charged when the value of the theft was more than $1,500, and the punishments include up to ten years in prison and $20,000 in fines. It is also considered a Class B felony. Second Degree Theft is the charge when the theft's value was between $750 and $1,500, with penalties that include up to five years in prison and $10,000 in fines. It is a Class B felony.

    I cannot thank Mr. Newcombe and his staff enough. They are awesome. When I first contacted his offices, I didn't know what to do. I was overwhelmed and confused. He did an amazing job, I highly recommend him! I had two cases, and he got both of them dismissed. If you are in trouble, do yourself a favor, give him a call.
