Atlanta Theft Crimes Lawyers

In Georgia, a few of the violent crimes, such as Armed Robbery, Home Invasion, and Hijacking a Motor Vehicle, involve an element of theft. However, the most common non-violent theft crimes are Theft by Shoplifting, Theft by Taking, Theft by Receiving Stolen Property, Theft by Conversion, Theft by Deception, Theft of Lost or Mislaid Property, and Theft of Services.

Whether a theft crime is a misdemeanor or a felony depends on the value of the items that were stolen. The value is also important because, if the theft is a felony, then the length of potential punishment increases as the total value of the stolen items increases. Because most of the time, law enforcement has no means to determine the true value of stolen items, they rely on guesses and estimates provided by the owners of the stolen items. When appropriate, our criminal defense attorneys challenge the State’s calculations for total value of stolen items and frequently receive offers to reduce felony thefts to misdemeanors.

Our experienced criminal defense lawyers have obtained “Not Guilty” verdicts after jury trials, and even dismissals, in various theft cases. Some common Georgia theft crimes we handle include:

  • Theft by Shoplifting
  • Theft by Taking
  • Theft by Deception
  • Theft by Conversion
  • Theft of Services
  • Theft of Lost or Mislaid Property
  • Theft by Receiving Stolen Property
  • Robbery
  • Armed Robbery
  • Hijacking a Motor Vehicle
  • Home Invasion
