Minneapolis Theft Defense Lawyer
Anyone who does not have permission and “takes, uses, transfers, conceals or retains possession” of another person’s property without that person’s consent can be charged with the crime of Theft. Similarly, receiving stolen property, whether with knowledge that the property was stolen or if a person should have known it was stolen, can be charged with the crime of Receiving Stolen Property.
Depending on the value of the property, Theft and Receiving Stolen Property can be charged as a Misdemeanor, Gross Misdemeanor or Felony. There are often defenses to such crimes and an experienced attorney may be able to defeat or reduce the charges or possibly arrange for entrance into a diversion program (in an effort to keep the conviction off of the offender’s criminal record).
