Obtaining Property By False Pretenses

This charge generally involves an act of deception that is used to gain something of value. Common examples include when authorities accuse someone of either stealing something and pawning it or shoplifting an item and attempting to return it for cash. A conviction can have serious and lasting consequences. When addressing these allegations, it is important to retain an experienced lawyer who knows how to question the evidence against you and advise you of your rights. We have your back.

Defending You Against Felony Or Misdemeanor Theft Charges
