Our Attorneys Can Help You Fight Property Crime Charges
A property crime is a type of offense that involves the violation of someone else's right to use, possess, or enjoy a piece of property, whether it be personal, real, or virtual. These crimes often involve the damage, destruction, or theft of property, but the victim is not typically physically harmed. However, in some cases, a property crime may be carried out using threats or physical force, such as in a strong-arm or armed robbery.
To obtain a conviction for a property crime, the prosecutor must be able to prove the case beyond a reasonable doubt, unless the accused pleads guilty. This means that the evidence against the accused must be strong enough to leave no reasonable doubt in the mind of the judge or jury about their guilt.
It is the right of all defendants to receive a strong legal defense that challenges the prosecution's case and works towards the best possible outcome. This right is protected by the Constitution.
