Las Cruces Theft Crime Lawyers
Protecting the Rights of Clients throughout New Mexico
Any time a person is accused of taking another’s property with the intent to deprive them of it, they can be charged with theft. If convicted, that person could face fines, jail time, and the difficulty of having a criminal record following them around for years to come, making it harder to obtain housing, employment, and loan opportunities. At The Lahann Law Firm, we understand how important it is for you to obtain the best possible outcome for your difficult situation. We can help you tell your side of the story and obtain the best possible outcome.
Avoiding a Criminal Conviction
Whether or not you are guilty of theft, having a criminal defense lawyer on your side can help you fight the charges against you. Law enforcement and prosecutors often go to great lengths to paint the accused as villains who need to suffer serious consequences in order to learn a lesson. At The Lahann Law Firm, we understand that being charged with a crime is often the only lesson a person needs to avoid making the same mistakes.
Effective strategies for fighting a theft charge can include:
- Returning the property: If a person’s property is no longer missing, there is no longer a need to prosecute. Our firm can help to argue on your behalf and avoid your having to suffer criminal consequences for the other person’s accusations.
- Showing proof of ownership: Sometimes, people give gifts only to demand them back later. That does not make you guilty of theft. We can help you show that you are the rightful owner of the property.
- Entrapment: Putting someone in a tough situation and coercing them to steal property is illegal. If you were told to take something only to find that it was a criminal act, The Lahann Law Firm can help you show that you were a victim of entrapment.
