Experienced Property Crimes Lawyer in Ogden, Utah
Property crimes have existed since ancient times. We can sum them up with one word, “theft.”
The law gives many names to theft, like fraud or embezzlement. If you commit a property crime in Utah, you need to pay for restitution.
Utah law gives the victim the right to get involved in court proceedings, like consulting them regarding a plea bargain agreement, for example.
Victims also have the right to remain in the courtroom to hear testimony, even if other witnesses are not allowed.
If you are facing a property crime, Godfrey Law can help dig for the facts needed for your best defense.
Property Crimes in Utah include the following:
- Felony Theft of Property
- Criminal Mischief
- Theft of Services
- Misdemeanor Theft of Property
- Motor Vehicle Crimes
- Criminal Trespass
- Receiving Stolen Property
Consequences of Property Crimes
Getting convicted of property crimes can impact your future because they can leave a mark on a person’s record. The ramifications may include denial of professional licenses, employment and immigration/deportation issues.
College students charged may encounter academic consequences. A conviction will stay on record for life, which can hamper future opportunities.
Crimes that have an element of deception and dishonesty can put a stigma on a person which may last for life.
Property Crimes can be either a felony or a misdemeanor, depending on the severity of the damage to property.
Utah police will investigate these types of offenses meticulously, which is why you can’t afford to have no attorney by your side to defend you.
In a case with no proper representation, a person can face serious jail time even for small damage.
Federal property crimes come into play when crimes happen on “federal property”, like a post office, administrative buildings and national parks.
