In our previous blog post, we discussed how not all thefts involve physical goods. If you recall, we discussed how stealing someone's identity is something that is also considered a theft. While identity theft doesn't involve physical items, it is prosecuted just like any other theft. The penalties are also considerable for cases of identity theft.
If you are charged with any type of theft or property crime, including identity theft, you should get started working on your defense right away. The last thing you should want to do is to wait until the last minute to get started on your defense. A defense that is thrown together at the last minute isn't as likely to be as effective as a well-prepared defense.
When you start working on your defense, you should be prepared to investigate your case. You know what you say happened with your case, but it is critical that you learn what the prosecution is claiming happened. This gives you an idea of what you need to factor into your defense.
We understand that trying to comb through the prosecution's case can be difficult. We can handle that aspect of your case so that we can look for the small details that can have a big impact on your case. As we learn about the case against you, we can help you to understand the options that you have for your defense. Since your case revolves around you and has an impact on your life, it is critical that you take an active part in your defense strategy.
