      Charged With Theft? We Can Help You.

      We are devoted to aggressive, hands-on legal services. This means your Charlotte larceny attorney will work directly with you and handle all aspects of your case. The prosecution must prove that you are guilty as charged, and we will strive to pursue all available options for preserving your innocence and protecting your interests.*

      We thoroughly prepare your case and press your accusers on every point, including:

      • Identification: Can they prove who took the allegedly stolen goods?
      • Dollar value: Does the dollar value of what was allegedly taken match the level of the crime you have been charged with?
      • Integrity of evidence: Is there any indication that the evidence has been tampered with in the process of collecting, preserving, transporting, and presenting it to a court?

      What is Larceny?

      Our Charlotte theft crimes lawyers help defend against misdemeanor and felony larceny charges. Larceny is taking personal property of another and carrying it away without his or her consent. This must be done with the intent to permanently deprive him or her of the property, with the knowledge that you did not have permission to take it.

          What is Misdemeanor Larceny?

          If the fair market value of the property is worth less than $1,000, it is a Class 1 misdemeanor under North Carolina law. Being convicted of larceny can carry a jail sentence of up to four months.

          What is Felony Larceny?

          Larceny is charged as a felony if the property is worth more than $1,000 or if the property taken was an explosive, firearm, or record of paper in the State Archives of North Carolina. Larceny can also be charged as a felony if the property was taken directly from the person or committed during a burglary. If convicted of larceny, you may face anywhere from four to eight months in jail.
