Typical theft/property crimes do not involve physical violence. Some of these crimes include hit-and-run; burglary and the possession of burglary tools; breaking and entering; vandalism (including graffiti); and computer/smart phone theft, a frequent college campus occurrence.
While each case is different, we are consistently successful in finding various methods of “alternative disposition” of theft/property crimes. Alternative disposition may include First Offenders Program placement, deferred prosecution, probation and community service.
In fact, depending on the age of the offender, we may be able to have his or her record expunged (removed from the public record). Throughout the years–due to the fact that theft/property crimes are often committed by individuals with drug and/or alcohol addictions–we have been able to help our clients find healthy alternatives to jail or prison time, such as treatment plans negotiated through Drug Courts.
