Defending against theft charges in New Jersey

There are a wide variety of theft crimes that a person could be charged with in New Jersey, including identity theft, shoplifting, credit card theft and bank fraud. As most of our readers can probably guess, all theft charges have an underlying implication: one person took something that was the property of another person without permission.

However, each different type of theft crime in New Jersey actually has somewhat different elements that the prosecution would need to prove in order to secure a conviction. It is important to realize that each individual element of each crime must be proven - proving just one element is not sufficient to secure a criminal conviction. At our law firm, we attempt to help our clients plan a sound theft crime defense strategy. To do that, we try to start from the beginning: what exactly is the crime you are faced with?

Many theft crimes can be felony charges. The criminal justice system, historically speaking, has been rather hard on people who are alleged to be thieves. This most likely is based on the notion that over the course of history many people fought very hard to even have the right to own property, so when another person is alleged to have taken that property without permission the crime is very serious indeed.

At our law firm, we know that it can be difficult to craft a criminal defense strategy when facing a theft charge. However, in many cases it can be done. Every criminal case is different, and at our law firm we attempt to evaluate each case on the unique circumstances it presents.
