Whether you are charged with stealing something from a store, stealing someone's identity or stealing from your employer, our theft attorneys have the experience and knowledge to help. We have handled countless theft cases involving a wide range of Pennsylvania petty theft and grand theft charges, including:
- Robbery and armed robbery
- Credit card theft
- Identity theft
- Theft by fraud, deception or extortion
- Receiving stolen property
- Employee theft
Under 18 PA. Cons. Stat. section 3903, theft of less than $2,000 in goods is a misdemeanor. Theft of goods valued at more than $2,000 or the theft of an automobile is a felony in the third degree. The sentence increases if the victim is elderly or has a disability.
No matter what theft charge you are facing, we will work promptly to build evidence in your favor and attack the prosecution's case. We may be able to steer the case away from the criminal justice system and request alternative treatment, such as community service.
Pardons and Expungements
The attorneys at Scaringi Law have been able to obtain pardons for individuals accused of shoplifting and other theft offenses. A pardon is different than an expungement. Generally, an expungement is only available to minor offenses that go to Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition (ARD).
