Even a first Theft charge can vary in seriousness depending upon the amount taken, the relationship with the victim of the theft, and the existence of a prior criminal record. For lower end, shoplifting typed theft offences, our theft lawyers are usually able to negotiate a resolution whereby the client avoids a criminal record by making a charitable donation or completing community service hours.
That said, our office routinely represents individuals charged with any kind of theft offence stemming from an employer/employee relationship. Such files are viewed quite differently as the Courts construe these as being a “breach of trust” and involve consequences that are far more severe. In the context of a trust theft offence, the Crown will routinely seek incarceration, notwithstanding the accused’s absence of a criminal record.
Be it a petty shoplifting charge or a multi-million dollar ponzi-scheme, our office’s theft lawyers will ensure that you receive the highest calibre of criminal representation.
