Outstanding Defense Lawyers For Tough Criminal Cases

Property crimes are generally those involving theft or destruction to another’s property. These crimes can range from vandalism to armed robbery, with charges ranging from lower-level misdemeanors to serious felonies. How the crime is charged will depend on the range of theft or destruction that occurred. This will then dictate the severity of the penalties that can ensue.

Thus, our Salinas property crime attorneys have gained extensive experience in handling these types of charges. That experience can be used to help you avoid the consequences of a conviction and potentially protect you in maintaining a clean record.

Property Crimes in California

Property crime charges will be based on the amount that was stolen, whether any bodily injury against another was committed during the crime, and whether force or weapons were used. Where injury or weapons were used, the offense may also be classified as a violent crime.

The Worthington Law Centre handles property crimes such as:

  • Auto theft
  • Burglary
  • Armed robbery
  • Bank robbery
  • Receiving stolen property or goods
  • Federal crimes, such as theft of property from a military installation or federally insured financial institution
  • Theft by fraud

Penalties can vary according to the charges. For example, a first-degree burglary conviction may be punished with two to six years of imprisonment and/or a fine of up to $10,000, while a second-degree misdemeanor burglary conviction is punishable by up to a year in jail and/or a fine of up to $1,000.

Take Advantage of The Worthington Law Centre’s Vast Experience

In many instances, our Salinas property crime lawyers can attack evidence, which may result in favorable plea bargains such as negotiating an armed robbery charge down to a lesser, nonviolent offense. Such tactics can help to keep you out of prison as well as protect your right to an expungement.

Because we work to avoid long-range consequences as well as handle the immediate problem of your defense, we can help to preserve your career, future educational opportunities, or your immigration status.
