Theft Crimes in Minnesota
In Minnesota, the level of severity of a theft crime and the consequences of conviction depend on the amount taken. In many instances, the key question is not turns on how the State valued the property involved. We have the knowledge and experience to challenge this critical aspect of a theft case.
If you have been charged with a misdemeanor theft offense, we can often get you a favorable outcome, particularly if you have no prior charges or convictions. Some Minnesota counties have diversion programs for individuals charged with theft crimes. You are not required to enter a plea and the charge will be dismissed, provided you comply with the terms established by the court. These terms can include restitution, classes or the restoration of items taken.
Where diversion is not available, we make every effort to help clients avoid or minimize jail time, and we advocate for alternative sentencing like home monitoring or community service.
