Quincy Theft Crime Attorney
Petty Theft, Grand Theft, Shoplifting, Burglary, Robbery and other Theft Crimes
Taking another person's property without his or her permission or consent is considered a theft crime. The penalties an individual could face for theft, or larceny, depend upon the value of the goods involved, as well as whether any firearm or other weapons were involved, and issues related to whether any individual was threatened or injured in the commission of the crime. A convicted individual could face heavy fines, restitution, probation, a lengthy prison sentence, and the repercussions involved in being a convicted felon. The value of the property stolen, whether the theft involved assault or
battery, a previous criminal record, and other factors will affect the level of the charge filed against you. If you have been charged with a theft crime, it is urgent that you contact a
Quincy criminal defense lawyer from our firm immediately.
In our state, the crime of burglary of a home that includes possession of a dangerous weapon, in a conviction will lead to 10 years in state prison. If the weapon that is alleged to have been involved in the burglary was an automatic weapon such as a firearm, rifle, shotgun, machine gun or assault weapon, a conviction will lead to imprisonment in the state prison for life, or for any term of years, but not less than 15 years and no possibility of a suspended sentence.
Armed robbery is also punished heavily under state law, and a conviction on a first offense, with no prior criminal record can include a punishment of 5 years in state prison. Any subsequent conviction will have a penalty much more severe, with 10 years in prison often imposed by the court.
