If convicted, even a seemingly minor theft or fraud scheme offense (legally considered crimes involving “moral turpitude”) will remain on the defendant’s record for years to come. If you have been charged with theft, contact an experienced defense attorney at Mohammadi & Humayun, LLC today via our online contact form to schedule your free consultation.
Theft and fraud charges and penalties depend upon a number of factors—a defendant’s prior record, the value of the property stolen, the place in which the alleged crime occurred, the relationship between the defendant and alleged victim, and the nature of the alleged theft or fraud scheme, are all amongst the vast number of factors considered.
Generally, the value of the property in question can determine whether a defendant will be charged with a misdemeanor or felony offense. A defendant may end up facing significant jail time, fines, burdensome probation conditions, and may even suffer additional consequences e.g. termination of employment, or even be barred from filing an adjustment of status or citizenship application. Moreover, after serving time and paying fines etc., the defendant will continue to carry the weight of the conviction on their record every time they apply for a new job, housing, loan, or professional license etc.
