AGGRESSIVE CRIMINAL DEFENSE FOR NEW YORK RESIDENTS CHARGED WITH PETIT THEFT
While petit theft, or petit larceny, is the least serious class of theft charges under New York state law, a conviction can leave a bad mark on your criminal history and could mean a hefty fine and even jail time, especially if it’s not your first offense. New York public defenders simply don’t have the time or resources to provide comprehensive criminal defense for individuals charged with petty theft, and frequently the courts will offer a plea bargain, depending on your case and criminal history, which a public defender may pressure you to take.
If you have been charged with petty larceny, it’s important that you speak to a skilled and aggressive New York criminal defense attorney before speaking to the police or making any kind of statement regarding your charges. With offices in the Bronx, White Plains, and Briarcliff, the petit theft defense lawyers at Siriano & Bernstein have represented clients in Westchester County and the New York City metropolitan area in petit theft cases for decades, and are ready to put their experience to work for you.
PETIT LARCENY IN THE STATE OF NEW YORK
In New York, petit larceny is defined as the unlawful taking of services or property valued at less than $1,000. Oftentimes those accused of shoplifting or retail theft will be charged with petit theft if the property in question fits that criteria. In addition to heavy fines and possible jail time, a conviction for petit theft could impact your future employment and housing, showing up on background checks for potential employers and landlords.
