Maryland Robbery Attorney
A theft or robbery conviction has consequences far beyond a fine or jail time. Many employers will not hire someone who has a theft conviction on his or her record. A conviction can also affect your ability to obtain a security clearance or a visa.
At the Law Offices of James E. Crawford Jr., our lawyers defend people facing theft-related charges in Baltimore, Catonsville, Annapolis, Bel Air and throughout Maryland. For more information about specific types of theft cases, click on the following links:
- Theft (a.k.a. larceny): In Maryland, theft of less than $1,000 is charged as a misdemeanor. Theft of $1,000 or more is a felony.
- Shoplifting: Even if you think you are guilty of the charges, an experienced attorney can do many things to prevent a poor decision from becoming a permanent criminal record.
- Burglary: Breaking and entering a residence to commit a crime such as theft increases the possible consequences you may face. Maryland courts take burglary charges very seriously.
- Robbery: When you are accused of using force or the threat of force, you may face felony charges regardless of the amount taken.
- Embezzlement: Theft from employers can involve significant sums of money. Because the charges you face will depend on the amount taken, you could be looking at a lengthy prison sentence.
In addition to theft charges, our attorneys handle cases of trespassing and vandalism.
