Miami Theft Lawyers

Defense for Miami-Dade Theft Charges

Theft crimes in the state of Florida can result in legal consequences to the individual who has been charged. Not only could you face incarceration, but also heavy fines, a criminal record, and a driver's license suspension. In addition to criminal penalties, you can face job loss and a lack of educational opportunity.

Allegations for theft can arise out of a mere accusation or accident. Florida prosecutors will attempt to prosecute theft crimes to their fullest extent. You will need to approach your case with caution and speed by speaking with a Miami criminal defense attorney from DeFabio, Beckham & Solis.

Types of Theft Crimes in Florida

Specific penalties for a conviction will primarily depend on the specific theft crime that you have been charged.

Theft crimes include:

Shoplifting as described in the Florida Statutes § 812.015 refers to the offense of taking merchandise from a store with the intention of depriving the owner of the full value of the item.

Either a felony in the first or second degree can be charged depending on the property's value for shoplifting. Grand theft refers to the taking of another's property that is valued at a price of $300 or more. Based on Florida Statutes § 812.014, the offender's intent must have been to deprive the owner of his or her property.
