Des Moines Theft Lawyer

Polk County Attorney for Shoplifting, Robbery, Burglary and Other Theft Crimes

Theft is defined as the unlawful taking of someone else's property with the intent to deprive the owner of it permanently. From shoplifting or petty theft to armed robbery or burglary, the courts take theft crimes seriously. Aside from paying restitution for the item or items stolen, additional penalties could include possible jail depending on the level or amount stolen, and a permanent mark on your record. This in turn could prevent you from obtaining a job or a loan, for example.
