Minnesota Theft Attorney

HomePractice AreasTheft

Prosecutions for Theft Crimes can result in a wide spectrum of long-lasting consequences. These include prison or jail, fines, loss of jobs/careers and other opportunities, and, of course, damage to one’s reputation.

Minnesota Theft laws pertain to the stealing of property, services, and identity.

Thefts can be misdemeanor, gross misdemeanor or felony-level offenses depending on things such as: exactly what was stolen, the value of what was stolen, from whom the thing was stolen, whether the accused has a prior record and, how many offenses the accused committed during a certain time period.

Prosecution in a federal court is more likely if the case involves a bank or other federal institution and/or there are very large amounts of money as we see in many embezzlement or “white-collar crimes”. Federal guidelines for these types of crimes usually call for many years of federal prison which can be anywhere in the USA regardless of where the crime was committed or what you may consider to be your “home state”.

The related crime of Receiving Stolen Property is also unlawful, and usually a felony.

Attorneys at Halberg Defense have been handling state and federal Theft Crimes successfully for many years. Even if you are guilty of a Theft Crime and there is enough evidence to prove it, an experienced lawyer from our firm may be able to keep you from having many or most consequences, including a blemished record.
