Theft Attorney in Roswell

Roswell Criminal Defense Lawyer

Theft, as defined by Georgia law, is taking a good or service without payment or permission. Many people get arrested for theft every year, and if you're one of them, we need to talk.

Georgia law covers theft by a number of different means:

  • Deception
  • Conversion
  • Services
  • Mislaid property
  • Receiving stolen property from another state
  • Transporting stolen property into Georgia
  • Shoplifting
  • Extortion

Theft can be either a misdemeanor or a felony charge. Misdemeanor theft is theft of property valued at $500 or less. Misdemeanors are punishable by up to $1,000 in fines and up to a year in jail. Felony theft is theft valued above $500. Felony theft is punishable by a prison term of many years and hefty fines, depending on the circumstances. There are a few exceptions, in which case, the theft would be considered a felony, despite the value of the property in question.

These exceptions include:

  • Theft of bank or government property by an employee
  • Theft regarding a breach in a fiduciary relationship
  • Theft involving grave markings
  • Theft of vehicle or parts valued above $100
  • Theft of a destructive device (including explosives and firearms)
  • Theft of anhydrous ammonia (can be used in the production of meth)
