Though it goes by various names, theft is the taking of property or other items of value that belong to someone else. The charges may be misdemeanor or felony, since Michigan theft crimes are partly based upon the value of the items that were stolen. The charges are also affected by underlying circumstances, including use of force or prior convictions. Depending on the facts, you could be sentenced to years in prison. Plus, the fines could be astronomical, up to three times the value of the stolen property.


However, it is always important to realize that an arrest for theft crimes is not the same as a conviction. You have opportunities to contest the government’s evidence, present defenses, and pursue other options for resolving the charges. David G Moore, Attorney at Law, will be at your side to protect your rights, bringing his unique experience as a former prosecutor. He is prepared to advocate for you in court and in plea bargain discussions.
