Theft

If you have been arrested for theft in Maryland, it is important to know your rights and the legal options that are available to you. The penalties for theft can have serious consequences on your life, and an experienced attorney will be able to consult with you on your next move.

At Rhodes Law Firm, LLC, we have handled numerous theft cases over the years and have had considerable success in defending the rights of our clients. Even though the first step is always to negotiate with the prosecution to have the charges dropped or reduced, we have the resources and expertise required to take the matter to court, if need be.

Being Charged With Theft In Maryland

For you to be convicted of theft, the prosecution has to prove that you willfully took an item that did not belong to you. The item need not be tangible, and so, services and ideas can be stolen as well. Whether you are charged with a felony or a misdemeanor depends on the value of the stolen item.

We have extensive experience in dealing with a variety of theft charges, including:

  • Shoplifting
  • Credit card theft
  • Possession of stolen property
  • Extortion
  • Employee theft
  • Misdemeanor theft

Defenses To A Theft Charge

The potential defenses to a theft charge depend entirely on the circumstances surrounding your particular case. These defenses range from false charges to illegal search and seizure. Shauna Rhodes, the head attorney at Rhodes Law Firm, LLC, will evaluate your case personally and determine which defense is likely to bring the best outcome in your case. Her considerable skill and experience could prove to be the difference between an acquittal and a conviction.
