Protecting your rights in Maryland Courts
As an experienced Annapolis theft defense attorney, I assist with misdemeanor and felony theft charges. I also help with the most severe theft-related charges, like robbery and carjacking. To convict you on either of these charges, the state must prove that you not only took the property, but also used some violence or threat of violence in doing so. A robbery conviction could result in up to 20 years of imprisonment, while a carjacking could land you in jail for up to 30 years.
The potential punishments for a theft conviction are serious, but the consequences don’t end there. A felony conviction can keep you from getting a job, owning firearms, and voting. To ensure the protection of your rights, it’s important to speak with a seasoned Annapolis theft defense lawyer before making any statements to law enforcement. Under the stress of the situation, you may say something that could hurt the success of your case.
