You should consult with a criminal defense attorney immediately. They will work to minimize the impact of the charges on your record. I recommend William Umansky in your area. He will do a good job handling both the criminal aspect and ensuring your record is as clean as possible. Good luck.
This answer does not, nor is it intended to, create an attorney-client relationship or constitute attorney advertising. Rather, it is offered solely for informational purposes. The facts of each case are different and unique, it is critical to consult with qualified counsel with whom information can be shared and assessed under attorney-client privilege, so that competent and quality advice can be obtained on which you can make informed decisions
Hello. While it was a stupi mistake, theft charges are serious and can impact your career as well as have a social stigma. We would be glad to meet with you to answer any questions you have about the process. You can put this behind you but it is important you truly understand the charges and options. I am in England on vacation but my office is open and I have other lawyers there who will be glad to answer your questions.
Please be advised that answering your questions does not establish an attorney-client relationship with myself or my firm. We would be more than happy to set up a free consultation if you call us at 407-588-6714 and specifically mention AVVO or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and put AVVO in the subject line.
