Salt Lake City Theft Crime Defense Attorneys

What Are White Collar Crimes in Utah?

Theft is a very broad descriptor that covers a wide variety of crimes in which property, goods, or services were unlawfully removed from the rightful owner's possession, and is actually considered to be one of the most common crimes committed in the state of Utah. These crimes can sometimes be defended by explaining the circumstances surrounding the property: perhaps you had permission to take the property, or you never took the property to begin with. These defenses revolve around intent. The prosecution will seek to prove you intentionally stole the property.

Understanding Utah Shoplifting Charges & Laws

Many people believe that if a store catches you carrying an item in a "suspicious" manner, they can arrest you for shoplifting. However, a store can only charge you with shoplifting if the item left the store. If a store employee simply assumed you were stealing and stopped you before you left the store, it's almost impossible for them to charge you with a crime.

Even a minor shoplifting crime can affect your ability to get a job in the future. Criminal accusations can imply you're not trustworthy. Our theft crime lawyers in Salt Lake City work to mitigate this risk by protecting your reputation with skilled, intelligent defense.
