Effective Defense for Theft Charges

A theft charge can be a misdemeanor or felony, depending on several factors, including prior theft convictions and the amount of money, or value of the property, at issue in the case. Often, the State considers whether the items were recovered, or can be recovered, when considering the recommended penalty in your specific case.

Anita represents clients facing charges for:

  • Misdemeanor petit theft
  • Felony petit theft
  • Grand theft
  • Dealing in stolen property
  • False verification of ownership

When the value of the property is between $100 and $300, the theft charge is usually a misdemeanor. If the property is valued at more than $300, you could be facing a felony charge. As a skilled St. Petersburg theft crimes attorney who has worked against the State her entire career, Anita thoroughly understands what it takes to get your theft case possibly reduced to a lesser offense or dismissed altogether.

Fighting Burglary Charges

The State takes crimes involving a person’s home and personal property very seriously. Thus, a conviction for a burglary charge can result in harsh penalties. Whether the burglary involves a “structure” or “dwelling” as defined under the law can significantly affect the severity of the penalties you are facing.

Anita represents clients who have been charged with:

  • Burglary of a structure or conveyance
  • Burglary of a dwelling
  • Burglary with assault or battery

To prove the crime of burglary, the State must prove two elements beyond the exclusion of any reasonable doubt:

  1. The entry of a dwelling, structure or conveyance and
  2. at the time of entering, the individual had the intent to commit a crime therein.

Florida statutes define a dwelling as:

  • A building or conveyance of any kind with a roof over it that is designed to be occupied by people lodging therein at night, together with the surrounding curtilage.

The actual home itself is the “dwelling” under the law. Curtilage includes enclosed spaces in the vicinity of a residence. This may include a garage, shed, or other structure on the property. The backyard may be considered curtilage if it is enclosed by a fence.

Skilled Legal Representation for Complex Cases

Due to the complexity of burglary cases and what is considered to be within the curtilage of a home, it is important to discuss the facts of your case in detail with an experienced Saint Petersburg theft crimes attorney. At McNulty Parker Law, PLLC, Anita will take the time to discuss your case in detail with you and evaluate the best possible defense to your theft or burglary case.
