Los Angeles Grand Theft Attorney
Helping to Defend against Criminal Grand Theft Charges in Los Angeles
Grand theft is a serious offense in the State of California that can subject you to serious penalties if you are ultimately convicted. Grand theft offenses in California involve the taking of property through larceny, larceny-by-trick, embezzlement, or false pretenses. If the prosecutor is successful in meeting his or her burden of proof, then you could be looking at jail time and large monetary fines.
An experienced Los Angeles grand theft lawyer at Anand Law Group, P.C., can assist you with defending against your grand theft charge and pursuing the best possible result in your criminal case.
In California, any of the following activities can constitute grand theft:
● Stealing labor, money, or property that is valued at more than $950
● Stealing property directly from someone else’s person
● Stealing labor, property, or money from an employer for more than one year and having a total value in excess of $950
There are several defenses that you may be able to raise in response to a grand theft charge in California. First, you may be able to argue that you truly believed you had a legal right to the property in question. Second, you could argue that the property owner allowed you to borrow or take possession of the property in question. These are just examples.
