Theft from a Person

Theft from a person is essentially a robbery, but without the threat of bodily injury or physical injury to the victim. The most common scenario is the purse-snatcher case. A suspect takes property, which belongs to the victim from their person, but does so without threatening to harm them and without causing any physical injury to them.

These cases are typically filed as robbery cases and are later reduced down to a theft from a person. The significant advantage here is that a robbery is a 2nd degree felony, whereas a theft from a person is a State Jail Felony.

While many cases are reduced to a theft from a person, there are a lot of cases which should be filed as a misdemeanor theft case that are actually filed as a theft from a person. There is a huge difference in being charged with a felony vs. a misdemeanor. Hiring the right lawyer will make all the difference in the world in terms of how these cases are actually handled.

They did a great job getting rid of my parking and speeding tickets. I recommended them to my friends and family. And they've also experienced the same professionalism and great quality service at an affordable price.

Dustan and his staff create the best team. They know the law, and made me feel like I was involved and understood everything that was going on. Dustan took the time to explain to me and my family what we could expect, and then led the way.
