Canton Theft Defense Lawyer

If you have been accused of a theft offense, the consequences could include fines, jail time and more. If you are convicted, you will have a crime on your record that will likely make it very difficult to get future employment. Your future is in jeopardy. Theft charges need to be fought. You will find a Canton theft defense attorney who will fight for you at the Kaplanis Law Offices.

Defense Against All Theft Charges

I defend against all theft charges, including:

  • Petty theft
  • Felony theft
  • Shoplifting
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Receiving or possession of stolen property

I also defend against fraud charges of all types, including check fraud and bad check charges.

Can They Prove You Were Stealing?

Robbery, burglary and other theft charges often hinge on the issue of identification. Perhaps a witness identified you. Perhaps there is photographic or videotape evidence that supposedly shows you at the scene of the crime. With more than 20 years of experience as a lawyer, I understand that this type of evidence is not as solid as law enforcement and prosecutors would like people to believe. I will aggressively attack this evidence. Perhaps a video shows a person in a similar jacket, but closer inspection reveals it is not exactly the same jacket. Perhaps a photo shows someone with similar physical characteristics, but how blurry is it, how shadowed? I strive to overcome misidentification and seek dismissal.

Even when the evidence proves to be solid, there may be options. For example, Stark County's Chance program allows people charged with nonviolent, drug-related theft crimes the opportunity to have the charges dismissed upon completion of the program's requirements.
