Criminal Attorney Marc Seitles represents people accuses of burglary, larceny, grand theft, grand theft auto, credit card theft, embezzlement, petit theft, dealing in stolen property, and shoplifting.
Burglary requires the breaking and entering into a home or dwelling. There is no requirement that any person be inside the home in order to be charged with burglary. Burglary can be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor.
Dealing in stolen property requires that a person either knowingly purchase or sell property he or she knows to be stolen. This can include stolen cars, computers, merchandise, electronic equipment, or even food, cigarettes, and alcohol.
Embezzlement is the fraudulent taking of a person's property for one's own use. In order to be accused of embezzlement, there must a relationship between the victim and the accused and the accused must have come to possess the money or property through that relationship.
Petty theft involves the unlawful taking a person's property where the property has a small monetary value. Petty theft can be charged by the state as a felony or a misdemeanor.
Grand theft is a more serious unlawful taking of a person's property. In other words, the value of the property is greater than in petty theft cases. Grand theft can also be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor.
