Zealous Defense When Theft Is A Criminal Charge
In Minnesota, you may be charged with theft regardless of whether you stole physical property. You can be charged with theft for a number of reasons, including bouncing a check or falsifying certain reimbursement claims.
The consequences of a theft conviction depend heavily on your history and the individual facts of the case, such as the monetary value of the property stolen. You could face up to 20 years’ imprisonment, a fine of $100,000 or both. If you are convicted of wrongfully obtaining public assistance, you may be disqualified from ever receiving such assistance in the future.
