Illinois Property Crimes Attorney

Bloomingdale Property Crimes Defense Attorney

Lawyers for Individuals Accused of Theft and Burglary in Itasca

Property crimes include theft, shoplifting, robbery, burglary, criminal trespass, fraud, vandalism, arson, embezzlement, and other crimes against another person's property. Many property crimes can be misdemeanors or felonies depending on the circumstances of the crime and the defendant's criminal history. Being convicted of a property crime can result in heavy fees and years of jail time. Furthermore, finding suitable housing and employment can be nearly impossible after being convicted of a property crime - especially if the crime was a felony offense.

At Ana M. Mencini & Associates, P.C., we believe in the principle of innocent until proven guilty. That is why our criminal defense attorneys put their education and experience to work helping criminal defendants build a strong legal defense against property crime accusations.

Fighting Theft Charges in Bensenville

Property crimes vary significantly in their severity and potential criminal penalties. For example, theft can be a misdemeanor charge or a felony depending on the value of the items stolen. Theft of property valued at less than $500 is a Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail and a fine of $2,500. However, if the crime was committed at a place of worship or school, or if the property stolen was government property, the crime becomes a Class 4 felony. Theft of property valued at $500 to $10,000 is a Class 3 felony which carries penalties including two to five years' incarceration and up to $25,000 in fines. Theft of property valued $10,000-$100,000 is a Class 2 felony punishable by up to seven years in jail in addition to fees of up to $25,000. Theft of property of $500,000-$1,000,000 in value is a Class 1 felony punishable by up to fifteen years in prison.

Some property crimes are considered "crimes of moral turpitude" which means that they are crimes that are inherently immoral. High-value theft, robbery, fraud, money laundering, and other serious property offenses can be considered crimes of moral turpitude, which could invalidate an individual's application for a visa or green card or even cause the offender to be deported.
