There are many different kinds of theft in Minnesota, but all are very serious offenses that carry the possibility of imprisonment, as well as the imposition of fines and court-ordered restitution. Theft can be a misdemeanor, gross misdemeanor, or felony, depending on the type of theft and the value of the property or the amount of money involved.
If you have been accused of theft, you have the right to secure the representation of a qualified and experienced Minnesota criminal defense lawyer. With the help of a dedicated and competent attorney, you are able to effectively fight the charges and receive a much better outcome than you would on your own.
A theft conviction could severely limit your ability to find a job, rent a home, acquire student loans, and much more. The mark on your criminal record that can be seen in a background check can be extremely problematic. This is why it is important to work to minimize (or, in some instances, completely eliminate) the consequences as much as possible. The stakes are high and you both deserve and need to have your rights and your future defended.
