Olathe Theft Lawyer

Theft Crimes in Johnson County

Theft is a criminal charge that can include a variety of illegal acts. The basic act is that of appropriating someone else's property without their consent. This can include buying stolen property, bouncing checks, shoplifting, and general theft. The penalties of a theft conviction can vary depending on the specific crime committed and the circumstances surrounding the commission of the crime, such as the value of the item or items taken. The punishment can be as small as a monetary fine, or as steep as jail time, if the crime has been elevated to felony status. If you have been charged with a theft crime, it is important to know that you have rights in this situation, and a skilled Olathe criminal defense attorney can help you in protecting those rights and fighting for a beneficial outcome to your case.

Theft Attorney in Olathe

The onus is on law enforcement officers to prove there was criminal intent in your actions before you can be charged with theft. In other words, you knew the property belonged to another, you had no permission or consent from them to take it, and you had/have it actively in your possession. A knowledgeable attorney knows this, and will be able to artfully defend your theft case by exposing inconsistencies or errors on the part of the arresting officers or the prosecution in your trial. I, John E. Harvell, P.A., have considerable experience in defending cases very similar to yours. Additionally, I have served as prosecutor, which gives me substantial insight into how the other side thinks and operates in cases such as these. I can provide you with professional legal help in your theft case, and I will put my experience and knowledge to good use and work hard to increase the likelihood of a resolution to your case that is advantageous to you.
