Felony or Misdemeanor Theft Charges

Theft of property, goods, or services can either be a felony or a misdemeanor in Florida. Our criminal defense attorneys represent central Florida clients charged with these theft-related offenses:

Penalties for Theft in Florida

The consequences of a theft or shoplifting conviction may include:

  • Mandatory fines and costs
  • Probation and community service
  • Suspension of your driver's license
  • Possible jail time
  • Loss of college scholarships
  • Public humiliation
  • Career stress or loss of job
  • Loss of professional licenses

Crimes of dishonesty can affect your employment in any job. Theft and fraud convictions could result in loss of professional or occupational licenses and loss of college scholarships. Believe it or not, if you are convicted of a theft offense, the judge can and usually will suspend your driver's license.

We often find that clients accused of theft and white collar crimes are good people who have made mistakes in judgment. Perhaps you are a housewife, college student or tourist. We always do our best to resolve these matters quickly and efficiently by using creative strategies. If you are a first-time theft offender, you may be eligible for a diversion or intervention program which result in your charges getting dropped or dismissed.

Defending Theft and Shoplifting Charges

When charged with a theft crime there are many different defense strategies that an attorney may use. For example, you may never have intended to steal the item in the first place and an experienced attorney will work to make sure the prosecutor cannot prove the offense was committed intentionally. 

Example of a Recent Case We Defended:

We represented a client after she was caught shoplifting from a retail store in Orlando. Our client had never been in trouble before, but the prosecutor was trying to charge her with scheme to defraud which is a felony in Florida. Instead our attorneys were able to convince the prosecutor to charge her only with a misdemeanor and instead of jail or probation we persuaded the prosecutor to put our client in a first offender program. Now all our client must do is complete the program and the State of Florida will drop the charges against her.
