Even minor embezzlement and other petty theft accusations can lead to felony charges and possible prison sentences.

You might be eligible for a diversion program if you have no prior arrests for theft crimes. This means that after successfully completing a one-day education class, you could potentially have your case dropped. In some cases, a person may be arrested for theft even if there was no intention of committing a crime. The intention to steal must be proved beyond a reasonable doubt by the prosecution in order to secure a conviction. Michelle D. Wallis will find any and all reasonable doubt to help defend you. There are plenty of legitimate and legally sound ways to successfully challenge a theft charge.

Wallis to represent and fight for you can make a remarkable difference in the outcome of your case and therefore, the outcome of your future.
