Leesburg Theft, Larceny & Embezzlement Attorneys
Many criminal defendants are prosecuted for crimes involving the theft of goods or money from individuals or businesses. Cases involving goods or money valued at less than $200 are misdemeanors and cases involving goods or money valued at $200 or more are felonies. These cases can range from mere shoplifting from a department store to the embezzlement of hundreds of thousands of dollars from an employer. Either way, these cases are very serious because they can not only result in incarceration but can also result in the defendant having to come up with a substantial amount of money to make restitution. Contact our experienced Leesburg & Loudoun County theft, larceny and embezzlement attorneys today.
It is also important to remember that theft charges are often brought against innocent individuals or are brought in situations where the alleged victim actually claims more was stolen than what actually occurred. Even more alarming are instances where the alleged victim is using the criminal justice system as a means of collecting what really should be a civil debt. Our Leesburg theft, larceny and embezzlement attorneys have experience in dealing with these specific cases, as well as cases where a person is wrongfully accused, is being accused of stealing more than they actually did, or is the victim of an inappropriate prosecution to collect on a civil debt.
