The Need For An Attorney When You Are Charged With Theft
Crimes of theft and embezzlement are often the result of serious financial problems. Law-abiding people who are in charge of a company checkbook can make bad decisions based on stress over money. At the Breeden Law Office, we help clients in Johnston, Harnett and Wake counties and throughout North Carolina who find themselves in serious legal trouble.
Even at a time like this, you have options. We have the experience and legal knowledge to find the best possible resolution to your theft charge. Contact us at 919-805-3639 or toll free at 866-346-1680.
Financial Problems And Ethical Lapses Can Lead To Criminal Charges
Handling the finances of an office, restaurant, church or volunteer organization is a bond of trust. Your job is to monitor what money comes in and what money goes out. Some can handle that level of responsibility; others struggle with ethical issues, particularly when grave financial matters affect their lives.
At the Breeden Law Office, we have clients come to us in serious trouble but lack a criminal record. Sometimes this involves writing a check to themselves to temporarily cover a debt that needed to be paid, intending to pay it back within a short amount of time. Or perhaps a relatively small amount of money was skimmed off of a bank deposit.
You Have Options Beyond A Jail Sentence
Regardless of the severity of the theft crime you are charged with, you have rights, and we fight to protect them. We not only investigate your case, but we also seek out the best resolution. Jail time is not automatic. You don't have to fall on the proverbial sword. Deferred prosecution programs that involve restitution to the crime victim are a common way to resolve these issues without undue impact on your life.
