Robbery, Burglary, Theft

Theft, robbery, and burglary are distinct but interconnected crimes, each with its own legal implications. Theft involves the unauthorized taking of someone else's property with the intent to permanently deprive them of it. This can range from petty theft, such as shoplifting, to more serious offenses involving embezzlement or identity theft.

Robbery, on the other hand, involves the use of force, intimidation, or threat during the act of theft. It typically occurs in the presence of the victim and is considered a violent crime. Robbery charges carry severe penalties due to the heightened element of danger and the impact on the victim.

Burglary is the unlawful entry into a structure with the intent to commit a crime, often theft, inside. It is distinct from robbery as it does not necessarily involve direct confrontation or violence. Burglary charges can vary depending on factors such as whether the structure was occupied at the time and the nature of the crime committed inside.

Whether you are facing charges related to theft, robbery or burglary, our team will meticulously examine the evidence, challenge the prosecution's case, and explore all available legal defenses. We will work diligently to uncover any weaknesses in the evidence against you and pursue every opportunity to have the charges reduced or dismissed.
