What are Violent Theft Crimes?
A violent theft crime occurs when a person steals the property of another and uses force or threats of force to do so. Theft by itself is already a "crime of moral turpitude" — this means it is considered a depraved offense, and a conviction can affect immigration status or the ability to obtain a professional license.
If you are accused of one of the violent theft crimes, in addition to felony charges, you could also face penalty under California's "Three Strikes" law. Under this law, if you are convicted of a third violent offense, like robbery, you receive a mandatory 25 years in prison.
Our practice fights passionately to defend clients accused of the following violent theft crimes:
Robbery — state law defines robbery as the act of stealing someone else's property through use of violence, force, or threats of imminent danger.
Carjacking — the act of taking another person's vehicle by use of force or fear. This means that you may be convicted of carjacking if you threaten the owner of the vehicle with violence, but do not injure him or her. If you face charges for this violent theft crime, do not hesitate to contact our firm for experienced guidance.
Extortion — the obtaining of property from another person by using force or fear.
If you or someone you love faces violent theft charges for robbery, extortion or carjacking, let our criminal defense attorneys build you a solid defense. We are an aggressive and successful criminal defense law firm and our team will fight for your freedom.
