Minnesota Statute 609.52 defines THEFT.

The acts constituting theft can vary widely, from simple shoplifting, to writing a bad check, to tricking someone out of their property. The potential severity of punishment depends on the value of the property allegedly taken.

For many people accused for the first time of theft, there are diversion programs available, or prosecutors that are willing to negotiate a favorable outcome to the case.

In any case, it is important that you do not plead guilty to a theft charge without consulting with a lawyer. A conviction for theft can be used by an employer to deny you employment, and can show up in background checks, seriously affecting your life.

“Whether you have been accused for the first time or have been accused before. Whether the amount is little or big, give me a call so that we can work together to make sure this does not have an unfair impact on your life.”
