Informed Decision-Making for

frequently asked questions

  • What does the government need to prove for Michigan theft crimes?
    State law uses the term larceny, and the basic definition is taking something of value from someone with the intent to deprive them of it. However, there are specific elements the prosecution must prove depending on the specific theft offense.
  • What do courts review when ordering a sentence for theft crimes in Grand Rapids?
    The first consideration is misdemeanor versus felony. The value of the property stolen is a key factor, since larceny below $1,000 is a misdemeanor and above is a felony. The most serious offenses are punishable by up to 10 years’ incarceration.
  • Are there other factors that impact the sentence for a conviction?
    Beyond these sentencing rules, a judge will also consider the defendant’s prior criminal history, the vulnerability of the victims, the number of victims, and other factors.
  • Why should I retain a Grand Rapids theft crimes attorney for help?
    You can rely on a lawyer to handle all essential tasks for the criminal process. If there are opportunities to plea bargain, an attorney knows the process and will advise you on resolving the charges through these options. Legal representation is also crucial in court when your trial date arrives.
  • How do I defend theft charges?
    There are defenses to theft charges, including mistake, lack of intent, or entrapment. You can also challenge the prosecutor’s evidence and prevent the government from meeting its burden of guilt beyond a reasonable doubt.
  • Do I have other options to plea bargain or negotiate?
    You can look into plea bargaining by agreement with the prosecutor. By pleading guilty, you might reduce the charges and jail time.
