Tucson Theft Crimes Attorney
In Arizona, a theft related conviction carries the stigma that a person is dishonest. Because theft convictions are considered crimes of “moral turpitude”, they can severely affect a person’s ability to be hired for a job, their immigration status, and their professional qualifications. Elias Damianakos is an experienced Tucson theft crimes attorney defending people accused of all types of misdemeanor and felony theft charges.
Tucson Misdemeanor and Felony Theft Charges
Generally, theft occurs when a person knowingly controls the property of another with the intent to permanently deprive the person of the property. In Arizona, theft crimes take many different forms, such as:
- credit card fraud
- failure to return rental property
- issuing a bad check
- trafficking in stolen property
- deceptive business practices
- false advertising
- fraudulent schemes and artifices
- auto theft (theft of means of transportation)
Penalties for Tucson Theft Crimes
The potential penalties for theft crimes in Arizona increase depending on various factors such as the value of the property taken and whether the person has any theft related prior convictions. Other factors include any prior criminal history, whether any physical force was used during the crime, and whether the property was returned to the owner.
