Plain and Simple Legal Advice


Protecting Your Future When Facing Theft Charges

We are working remotely during these trying times to make sure we can still support you in all your legal matters.

Please know you can call us or schedule online appointments for any of your legal matters. Be well and stay safe.

Theft offenses are considered “crimes of moral turpitude.” If that sounds bad to you, you’re right — it is. In fact, from a potential employer’s perspective, a conviction for theft (regardless of the type or amount) is pretty much the modern-day equivalent of a scarlet letter.

At Karcher Law Firm, we understand what’s at stake for people who have been charged with theft offenses and use our decades of experience to achieve the best possible resolution in every case. While a dismissal or acquittal isn’t always realistic, we feel confident in stating that the experience and resources we have to offer as a law firm can benefit you.

What Are You Accused Of?

We represent juveniles in shoplifting cases, adults charged with stealing from employers and people from virtually every walk of life charged under different circumstances. Our practice includes a variety of municipal court theft charges typically involving amounts of $200 or less, including:

  • Shoplifting
  • Theft of property
  • Theft of services
  • Theft by deception
  • Check fraud
  • Receiving stolen property

We also offer expungement assistance to individuals with prior theft convictions.

How Our Experience Can Benefit You

One of our defense lawyers is a former prosecutor who understands these municipal court cases from both perspectives. This helps us in several ways.

It enables us to effectively defend clients in cases where the evidence is susceptible to challenge. It helps us to negotiate plea bargains for reduced charges and more favorable sentencing terms in appropriate situations. It also helps us get first-time offenders the opportunity to walk away from these charges without a conviction on their criminal records.
