Irvine Theft Crimes Attorneys
Get Formers Prosecutors to Represent Your Theft Case
Theft crimes range from shoplifting a minor item to embezzling millions of dollars. Proving identification is the linchpin in the prosecution’s case. One common way to prove identification is by eyewitness identification. Eyewitness testimony, when available, can be challenged in court, especially in cases involving insurance fraud, identity theft, stolen property, commercial burglary, and shoplifting, prosecutors often rely on witnesses who may have only observed a suspect from a distance or short period of time or at night.

What to Do if the Police Want to Talk to You?
When dealing with the police it is important to remember you cannot talk your way out of being arrested. Once you have been taken into custody, trying to convince the police of your innocence will not result get you released. Instead, anything you say voluntarily will likely be used against you in court, especially if it contradicts evidence collected and what others have already told the police. If you have already been arrested or have reason to believe you are under investigation, consult our Irvine defense attorneys to ensure your rights are protected.
What to Do If the Police Claims That They Have You on Video?
Regardless of whether you have been charged with stealing from your employer, receiving stolen goods, or engaging in credit card fraud, do not assume everything the police tell you is true. Police officers often use deceptive tactics when questioning suspects and may tell you they have you committing a crime on surveillance tape.
Video footage is often of poor quality, providing unclear images that can be challenged effectively in court. Additionally, especially in credit card theft cases, it is not uncommon for prosecutors to try and connect you to other similar theft crimes that have occurred in the past. For these reasons, it is important to admit to nothing until you consult our experienced criminal defense lawyer in Irvine.
