Are You Facing Theft Or Burglary Charges?

Theft crimes are considered crimes of moral turpitude, a label that can haunt convicted individuals for years in employment, housing, immigration and other facets of life. Theft crimes may be charged as misdemeanors or felony offenses depending on the value of the property or services stolen, and whether the theft involved a weapon, a vehicle or any dangerous item.

At the Mankey Law Office in Golden Valley, we have extensive experience defending individuals in the Twin Cities metro against all types of theft charges, including:

  • Shoplifting
  • Burglary
  • Check fraud and check forgery
  • Credit card fraud
  • Robbery and armed robbery
  • Receiving stolen property
  • Identity theft

The earlier we become involved in your case, the better. Call 612-424-9454 today to learn how we can help. Your initial consultation is free of charge.

Even Minor Charges Can Have Long-Term Consequences

One of the most common types of theft charges is shoplifting. The people who face this charge are often young people with no prior arrests or convictions, and they often make the mistake of not talking to an attorney right away.

Having any type of theft on your record has both legal and personal consequences. Employers, landlords, colleges, credit bureaus and others who conduct background checks will learn of your conviction. The consequences can be crippling.
