West Palm Beach Theft Offenses Defense Lawyer
Theft offenses refer to criminal acts that deprive another person of their property. Theft crimes range from stealing directly from a person (robbery) or stealing from a person’s home or office (burglary), to tricking someone into giving you their property (fraud). Theft crimes span from misdemeanors to felonies, with penalties ranging from fines and community service to years in prison, depending upon the value of the property stolen, the means used, and other factors. Without a solid legal defense, a defendant charged with a theft crime can be hit with the highest possible charges and the maximum possible penalty. Don’t let the prosecution throw the book at you just because you don’t have the right legal counsel on your side.
If you’ve been arrested or charged with theft, fraud, burglary, robbery, or any other theft crime in South Florida, you need trustworthy legal advice and dedicated representation from a dependable Florida criminal defense attorney.

Defending Against Theft Charges
A seasoned Florida theft crime defense lawyer can undermine the prosecution’s case, negotiate for reduced charges or penalties, and potentially get the case tossed out in its entirety. Depending upon your circumstances, your West Palm Beach defense attorney may be able to show:
- The evidence against you is circumstantial, weak, or otherwise inconclusive
- The actions described as theft were, in fact, accidental or resulted from impairment, with no intent to steal involved
- The police violated your constitutional rights when searching and/or arresting you
- You were not the actual perpetrator and were simply the victim of misidentification
- You would benefit more from a diversion program and probation rather than conviction and incarceration
Your defense must be tailored to your charges, your circumstances, and the evidence available in your case. At The Law Office of Scott N. Richardson, we know how to build the strongest defense for defendants charged with theft in Florida. We’ll review your file, determine the strength of the prosecution’s case, and fight to ensure that you are not railroaded by an overzealous government attorney. If there’s a way to get your penalties or charges reduced or to get your case dropped, we’ll find it. If the prosecution remains intransigent, we’ll fight your case all the way through trial and beyond.
