Theft & Embezzlement
You Don’t Want A Theft Conviction On Your Record
Incarceration And Hefty Fines Are Possible
Theft crimes cover a range of charges and can include such offenses as:
- Petty larceny
- Grand larceny
- Auto theft
- Receiving stolen goods
- Burglary and robbery
- Fraud and embezzlement
Embezzlement and fraud are also considered white collar crimes. Depending on the details of the case, these may include federal charges. We have the federal defense experience to represent you in white collar cases. Your attorney must have this experience because federal court has its own deadlines and rules.
If you are charged with stealing less than $250 of goods/services in Minnesota, the charge will be a misdemeanor. For goods/services between $250 and $500, you will be charged with a gross misdemeanor. When the value is more than $500, you will face felony charges.
In addition to a possible jail or prison sentence, you may be ordered to pay fines and make restitution to the victims. A conviction can be expensive. It is better to fight the charges against you with the assistance of an experienced, aggressive lawyer. We are often able to get charges reduced or dismissed. We have won numerous acquittals in a broad range of serious cases, including theft cases.

Thanks Mr. John Leunig for representing me! I wanted to scream very loudly at the court house but I could not because I was afraid that I may talk in my African language. It felt SUPER DUPER GOOD!!!! but also felt like I was in a very good dream that I did not want to wake up from. The sentence has not sunk in yet. What? Are you serious! That’s it! You are the best Lawyer not only in the continental USA but in all the five continents in the world and I am thankful for choosing you out of the load of names I had.
