Virtually anyone can get accused of a theft crime. Indeed, simply being in the wrong place at the wrong time could get you in trouble with the law, even if you are innocent. Also, being present with a friend at the same time he or she decides to steal something from a department store could get you accused of being an accomplice to a robbery, and that is not a good position to be in.
Conversely, life circumstances could potentially drive any Utah resident to steal if conditions are bad enough, and we all make mistakes in judgment from time to time.
It could be that you are in fact guilty of the theft crimes you have been accused of.
Regardless if you are guilty or innocent, theft charges are very serious because a conviction could result in long-term consequences, like stiff fines, years in jail, a marred criminal record and difficulties getting hired for a job. Also, regardless if you are guilty or innocent, there will be a criminal defense strategy that is right for your case.
At Greg S. Law, we have the same goal for all of our clients who have been accused of crimes: to limit the chance and/or severity of punishments in our clients’ cases.
In some criminal actions, if the prosecution has gathered very strong evidence against the accused and a conviction will likely occur, it may be wisest to pursue a plea bargain with the prosecution — where a guilty plea is entered in exchange for a reduction in punishments. In other cases, where the evidence is not strong enough for a conviction to occur, a not guilty plea may be appropriate.
At the end of the day, our firm will respect your rights, and demand that the court respect your rights, too. We are strong advocates for the fact that no person is guilty of a crime until — and only if — he or she is proved to be beyond a reasonable doubt. If you have been accused of a crime in Utah, no matter how severe the charges, we can help you navigate your criminal proceedings.
