Dedicated Defense Against Damaging Theft And Property Crime Allegations
There are various criminal offenses that fall under the umbrella of property crimes in North Carolina, and each one carries a different level of consequences depending on the specifics of each case.
While fines and jail time are the most common consequences, young people who enter the deferred prosecution program could face less severe punishments, such as community service and attendance and completion of the Street Safe program, instead of having a criminal conviction on their record that could cause additional problems later in life.
Types Of Property Crimes We Handle
For 17 years and counting, attorney Jonathan D. Griffin has helped adults and young people throughout Iredell County address theft and property crime charges head-on using strong defense strategies that seek the best possible outcome for the situation at hand.
Located in Statesville, Griffin Law, PLLC, is experienced with and capable of handling the following criminal offenses:
- Theft — Taking property, assets or belongings without an owner’s consent
- Shoplifting — The willful concealment of merchandise or products while in a retail establishment
- Larceny — Unlawful taking of someone else’s property with the intent of permanently depriving that someone of future ownership
