At J. Mark Howell Attorney at Law, P.C., we have defended hundreds of people facing accusations of robbery, shoplifting and other theft crimes in Decatur, Wise County and north Texas.
We have successfully represented people charged with property crimes like:
- Shoplifting and retail theft
- Car theft
- Money laundering
- Identity theft
These offenses are not minor crimes. Even a simple shoplifting conviction can leave a lasting blemish on your criminal record and your ability to hold meaningful employment in your community. Many employers may see a theft conviction as a measure of your honesty and hesitate to hire someone with a criminal record.
To best protect yourself after being arrested for such a crime, avoid giving a statement before speaking with a knowledgeable criminal defense lawyer. Your attorney can communicate with investigators and prosecutors on your behalf.
