Defense Against Theft Charges
From stealing a candy bar from a local convenience store to carjacking a Ferrari, all theft crimes have an element of moral shame in our society. This means that even if the jail sentence is not lengthy, any type of theft conviction on your record will make it harder to find employment in this difficult job market. No employer wants to hire someone who they may steal from them.
In addition, a theft conviction will show up on your background checks when you apply for college admission, request a professional license or even go to rent an apartment.
At the law firm of Earl E. Conaway, III, A Professional Law Corporation, our San Luis Obispo theft lawyer is a bold advocate on behalf of individuals who need strong criminal defense.
