Aggressive Defense by an Experienced L.A. Theft Crime Attorney
Petty Theft is the theft of property having a value of less than $400., and is a misdemeanor offense carrying a maximum sentence of one year in the county jail. Grand theft is the theft of property having a value of $400 or more, and carries a potential for imprisonment in the state penitentiary. A petty theft charge against a person who has previously been convicted of petty theft is referred to as “petty theft with a prior” and is routinely charged as a felony. Any theft charge can therefore result in a loss of liberty and should be handled seriously. Los Angeles and Pasadena criminal attorney Robin Scroggie has successfully handled hundreds of theft charges. Call today for a free consultation.

Burglary is charged when a person is accused of entering a home, business or other structure for the purpose of stealing property. Residential Burglary is the burglary of an occupied dwelling. Commercial Burglary is the burglary of a store or business. Residential Burglary constitutes a “strike” for purposes of the California Three Strikes Law.
Shoplifting is the taking of property from a store or other business. When prosecutors feel that certain evidence in their case shows that the person to be charged likely entered the store with the intent to steal, they routinely charge the person with both Shoplifting and Commercial Burglary.
