It’s Never Too Early to Call a Theft Crimes Attorney in Inglewood CA
Ideally, you should call a theft crimes attorney in Inglewood CA to help you before you say anything at all to the police. Your attorney can help prevent you from hurting your own defense by admitting anything even remotely prejudicial to the police.
Hiring your attorney early on will also help set the ground for the strongest possible defense strategy by giving your attorney and their team more time to investigate and prepare. Key activities in this process include:
- Initiating the discovery process to analyze the prosecutor’s evidence
- Conducting our own investigation including interviewing witnesses to expose any lies, exaggerations, or omissions
- Filing motions to have any illegally obtained evidence or coerced testimony excluded
- Working with prosecutors to have charges reduced or dismissed
- Making sure any plea bargains are as fair as possible and expose you to the minimum possible penalties
Attention First-Time Offenders
Does this describe you?
- You have no theft-related charges on your record
- The cash, goods, or services allegedly taken were worth $50 or less
There is an excellent chance that your theft crimes attorney in Inglewood CA could convince the DA to reduce your charge from a misdemeanor to an infraction. If your alleged crime is charged as an infraction, you will be spared a trial and you will not end up with a criminal record.
If your alleged first-theft crime involves more than $50, don’t worry. A theft crimes attorney in Inglewood CA can still help by getting you enrolled in a diversion program. You will probably have to repay the amount allegedly stolen and do community service, but in exchange the charge will be dismissed.
