Theft Crimes

From shoplifting and unlawful concealment to fraud and armed robbery, theft crimes have more serious consequences than most people realize. One conviction for larceny can have a negative effect on a person's future. A burglary or robbery conviction can send a person to prison for many years.

Felony And Misdemeanor Theft

We defend people charged with misdemeanors and felonies, including crimes such as larceny, robbery, burglary, fraud, embezzlement and auto theft. In North Carolina:

  • Theft of goods valued at more than $1,000 is typically charged as a felony.
  • Theft of goods valued at or less than $1,000 is typically a misdemeanor offense.

Penalties for nonviolent theft crimes charged as class H felonies generally range from four to eight months in jail if you have no prior criminal record. Violent theft crimes such as burglary and robbery may have more serious penalties, including longer jail or prison sentences.

Working with an attorney is the best way to ensure that your rights are protected. We will investigate the case against you and present any mitigating factors to the prosecutor and judge.
