Towson, Maryland, Theft Crime Defense Attorney

If you have been charged with theft, you need a criminal defense attorney with experience defending against theft charges. At the Law Offices of Douglas T. Sachse in Towson, Maryland, we diligently handle misdemeanor and felony theft cases.

“Minor” Crimes with Major Consequences

Shoplifting is a common charge among adults and juveniles. Many times, a forgetful or distracted shopper mistakenly leaves something in their shopping cart, resulting in an arrest for shoplifting. While many assume that shoplifting is a minor offense, a conviction on your record can have lasting consequences.

Shoplifting, auto theft, burglary, robbery, and breaking and entering are all crimes of moral turpitude in Maryland. With such a crime on your record, an attorney can discredit you in court by bringing up your conviction if you are called to testify on someone’s behalf. Permanent residency can be denied to immigrants who hold a working visa. Employment prospects may be compromised. With this type of “black mark” on their record, any individual, whether juvenile or adult, and especially college students (Towson University, Goucher College, UMBC) ready to enter the employment pool, stands to feel the impact over the long term.

Representing You in a Theft Crime Defense Case

At the Law Offices of Douglas T. Sachse, we will take apart the facts of your theft case. Your attorney will review the police report and identify any areas where law enforcement may have violated your rights. We weigh the strength of the prosecutor’s case and then decide whether to proceed to trial or negotiate a plea. In the end, we seek the best possible outcome for your case so you can get on with your life.
