Frequently Asked Questions

  • What does the government need to prove for theft crimes in Michigan?
    For a basic larceny case, the prosecutor must prove that you stole someone else’s money, property, or other items. The different levels of theft vary according to the value of the items taken.
  • How long does it take to resolve a larceny case?
    The duration of the process varies, but a case will usually take several weeks from arrest to pretrial to the final trial. It will be shorter if you present defenses that lead to a dismissal of the charges.
  • Will I go to jail if convicted of theft?
    Misdemeanor theft is punishable by up to a year incarceration, but first-time offenders could avoid jail time. If the value of the property exceeds $20,000, the charge is a felony. You face up to 10 years in prison.
  • What defenses can I use to fight larceny charges?
    Your strategy starts by attacking weaknesses in the government’s case and trying to get evidence tossed. You cannot be convicted if the prosecutor cannot prove guilt beyond a reasonable doubt. Additional defenses include mistake or lack of intent.
  • What are other options to resolve theft crimes?
    Working out a plea bargain with the prosecution is a possibility if it serves your interests. You will need to plead guilty to theft, but you could get a reduction on the charges, punishment, or both.
  • How can I choose the right attorney to handle my theft case?
    Dedicate your search to candidates that focus on criminal law and have skills defending larceny charges. Your Portage theft offenses lawyer should also have extensive courtroom experience fighting for clients.
