David Deane Helps Those Charged With Theft and Larceny In Virginia

David Deane, Attorney at Law, PLLC, works hard to defend those accused of theft crimes. I have experience in defending against all types of criminal charges in both state and federal courts. I work with my clients to develop a defense strategy to reduce the likelihood of any possible punishments. I work with prosecutors to get my clients’ larceny and theft charges dropped or reduced. When that doesn’t work, I present a solid defense at trial.

Understanding Arlington Theft Crime Charges

There are a wide variety of criminal charges associated with theft. These charges vary by where the property was taken from, how it was acquired, the property’s value, and whether it involved violence. Theft is the taking of property. Depending on the property’s value, it may be considered petit theft, grand larceny, misdemeanor, or a felony in Northern Virginia. This type of charge is usually associated with crimes like shoplifting. Grand theft larceny in Virginia is a serious crime that will be permanent on your criminal record. Each state’s laws are different, and your Arlington Criminal Attorney will help you understand the charges against you.

Charges often become more serious when an accusation of violence accompanies them. Crimes where the property is taken directly from a person usually result in a charge of robbery or armed robbery. The theft of a car is considered carjacking when the owner or driver is present. I help clients build a defense against all types of theft charges.

Using A Variety Of Tactics To Defend Clients Against Theft Charges

Those who have been charged with theft crimes in Virginia should not give up hope. I will challenge every possible piece of evidence to avoid having it admitted to trial. I will oppose all possible motions by the prosecution and work to discredit witnesses who are called to testify against you. I would challenge the police procedure if your rights were violated during the investigation or your arrest. When possible, I will present evidence proving your alibi and showing that you did not commit the crime. When necessary, I will work with forensic experts to help discredit the prosecution’s case.

Defendants in theft cases often face the prospect of severe criminal punishment. They may have to pay restitution to the person they are accused of stealing. Theft crimes often come with the threat of jail time or prison sentences. In cases where I cannot establish innocence, I can get these charges and penalties reduced to probation.
