Types of Theft Crimes
Florida Law provides several different types and degrees of theft. Each type of Theft related offense can be charged several different ways and each carry with it many different potential penalties. When you hire the office of Dell & Schaefer, you are hiring a firm with over 30 years of experience defending clients charged with Theft and Theft related charges in the State of Florida.
It is important that you contact the office of Dell & Schaefer to speak with an experienced and knowledgeable criminal defense attorney. Attorney Grant Schwarz is a former prosecutor and knows how the state attorney’s office prosecutes these cases and knows how to properly defend his clients in an ethical and aggressive manner. Understanding that all cases are different, Attorney Grant Schwarz focuses all of his knowledge as a former prosecutor and criminal defense attorney to build a defense that works for your particular case.
Accused of stealing from your job or place of work?
While any crime involving theft is a serious offense, the Courts and state attorney’s office consider it a particularly egregious offense to steal from ones employer. Grant Schwarz has defended several clients who were charged with stealing or embezzling money or products from their place of work. When this happens, the state attorney’s office and courts handle the cases very aggressively and seek to hand down very stiff penalties including prison, jail or long periods of community control or probation.
First ever offense for Theft?
If this is your first time ever having been Arrested or given an Notice to Appear for a Florida Theft Crime, ask Attorney Grant Schwarz about potential enrollment in a Pretrial Diversion Program. The State of Florida has put into place several opportunities to have charges dismissed through Court monitored programs. These programs are designed to “punish” illegal conduct and deter future illegal conduct.
In exchange for completing a combination of community service hours, education classes and remaining arrest free for a pre-determined period of time, the State Attorney’s Office will agree to dismiss your charges. These programs are only offered to first time offenders, and even then, are dealt with on a case by case basis depending on who the alleged “victim” in the case is.
