What is Theft in the Second Degree?
Theft in the second degree (theft 2) is a class C
felony offense that may be punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of
up to $10,000. This offense involves the theft of:
- Property, services or goods valued at more than $750 to $5,000, except
a firearm or motor vehicle;
- A public record or instrument filed or kept in the possession of any public
office or public servant; or
- An access device (debit card, personal identification number, password
or other code that can be used to deposit, withdraw or transfer funds).
Challenging second degree theft charges can be difficult, but with the
right approach you may be able to avoid a conviction or formal charges
altogether. One of the most important pieces of advice I can give in this
regard is to consult with an attorney as early in the process as possible
– even if you are currently under investigation but formal charges
have not yet been filed against you. As a former prosecutor with thousands
of cases handled, I understand all of the best strategies employed by
defense attorneys and prosecutors alike. This diverse knowledge helps
me anticipate the prosecution’s next move. I know what I’m
doing and will fight tirelessly on your behalf to protect your legal rights.
