Being Accused of Theft in Florida
If you have been accused of theft then this means you have been accused of knowingly using or taking something of someone else’s without their permission. Theft crimes range from simple or petit theft, such as stealing something of little value, to grand theft, such as stealing something like a vehicle that carries a higher value. However, theft crimes do not just occur when something of material value is stolen. You could also be accused of theft if you have stolen someone’s identity.

Jeff Dean can represent you if you have been accused of a theft crime, regardless of the evidence against you or the severity of the crime in question.
Variations of Theft Crimes
Theft crimes are often considered crimes of dishonesty and therefore heavily impact your record and people’s perception of you. Stealing a television can be looked upon as a misdemeanor offense but there are plenty of crimes of dishonesty that are classified as felony offenses and carry heavy prison sentences. Theft in the workplace, known as white collar crimes, for example, come with fines of as much as $100,000 and are often classified as federal offenses. Burglary and robbery are also considered felony offenses.
Fraud related theft crimes, such as identity theft, computer crimes and false impersonation, also come with strict penalties depending upon the circumstances of your case. Some of the things that the court will consider include your previous criminal history, the impact the theft has had on the victim, the monetary amount of the goods stolen, the motive behind the crime and more.
