Last week we discussed the definition and consequences of petty theft in Virginia. After reading that post, you might wonder exactly what you can do to avoid those consequences. Of course, not having to face a petty theft charge at all is the most obvious way to avoid the consequences. The other way is to present a strong defense against charges that are brought against you for petty theft.
We have ample experience in defending clients against petty theft charges. We can put our experience to work for you to help you determine how to handle your case. We work with you to get a positive outcome for your case. We look into all the evidence presented by you and the prosecution so that we can determine the way to move forward with your defense.
In some theft cases, it might be possible to avoid going to jail. One way to do this is to get you acquitted on the charges. Another way is to seek a sentence that doesn't involve jail time if you are convicted or plead guilty to the charge at hand.
We know that you don't want to have to spend time behind bars or spend a lot of money paying fines. Let us put our experience to work for you to help you get a positive outcome for your case. While we work on your case, you can work toward building the life you want so you can move ahead in following your dreams when your case is over.
