Defend yourself against accusations of theft or burglary

Defend yourself against accusations of theft or burglary

Accusations of burglary or theft can quickly become dangerous for your reputation and can put your future in jeopardy. Accusations spread quickly through the community you live in and can make friends and family question your integrity. What can you do to prevent yourself from suffering from these accusations and the negative feelings that come from them?

There’s little you can do to prevent someone from accusing you of an act, but you can defend yourself from the moment the accusation is made clear. Burglary in particular is a very serious felony in Maryland, so you’ll want to make sure you defend yourself by pointing out why you couldn’t have been the person responsible or how you were forced to participate in a crime.

It’s important not to speak with police or others until you have time to review your case with your attorney. If you admit participating in the crime, you could be charged and convicted with your confession, but if you say nothing, you may have time to prevent a sentence you don’t deserve.

If you are found guilty of a crime despite your best efforts to defend yourself, you may find that it’s difficult to find a job or get into a good university when you want to build up your education. Any time you need a background check, your felony could come back to haunt you. These are just some of the issues you could run into. Our website has more information on theft and burglary felonies and what you should expect if you’re accused or convicted of this serious crime.
