Lawyer, Ricardo Alvarez

In the State of Florida, there are two types of Criminal Theft:

In order for the prosecution to obtain a conviction for a theft crime, proof of a taking with the intent to steal must be proven beyond a reasonable doubt. If your defense attorney can show that you had a good faith belief in the right to the property it may warrant the charges to be dropped or dismissed. Additionally, the value of the property must meet the value standards of at least $300.00 at the time the property was allegedly stolen for a grand theft conviction.

The value of that which was allegedly taken must be what the value was the day it was allegedly taken, not the retail price the alleged victim paid when he or she originally purchased the items in question.

If you have been charged with a theft crime, you need an attorney on your side who is knowledgeable of the law, experienced at trial, and able to negotiate for you from a position of strength. Call our law office 24 hours a day, 7 days a week at 863.709.0808, or by using our online case evaluation form.

We stand ready to aggressively represent you, and answer all of your questions. An aggressive defense of your case in the early stages could lead to the charges against you being dismissed or reduced.
