If you are convicted of a theft charge of any kind, the penalties will have consequences on your life for many years to come. Even if you think that there is no way out or that you cannot afford a lawyer, you should seek legal counsel to get an understanding of your legal options.
Plea bargains, restitution to victims, community service and other options may be available in your case. Such options may help to reduce the charges and consequences that you face.
Defense Options and Beating Theft Charges
At The Law Offices of Jeffrey Jones, we independently investigate the case against you. To be proven guilty in Tennessee, the burden of proof lies with the prosecution, and that burden is high. Proving beyond a reasonable doubt that you intended to steal property, commit fraud or purchase goods you knew to be stolen requires there to be no other reasonable explanation for your actions or possession of stolen property.
Witness testimony that is not credible, lack of probable cause for your arrest, violations of your constitutional rights during arrest or processing, and circumstantial evidence presented by the prosecution can all benefit your case and lead to getting the charges against you dismissed.
Experienced defense representation is critical before pursuing any defense strategy. Even for relatively minor charges, such as shoplifting, the quality of your defense will determine the rest of your life.
