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.

THANK YOU for your outstanding representation, support and assistance in my case.
Many thanks for your services and your time. I am thankful for how everything worked out.
I never had a chance to properly thank you for helping me out of that jam with my DWI. You were huge.
Thank you so much for all your help. …It meant so much to me at such a time in my life! You made things so much easier for me and made me feel a lot better with my situation.
Thank you very much for your excellent job in representing me in court for my case. Thank you especially for keeping me out of jail as that was the primary reason for hiring you. My friends have commented. “You got off easy” and I reply, “I give credit to my attorney John Leunig, I found him in the St. Paul Yellow Pages under Attorneys.” Thank you again.
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. I cannot find better vocabulary in any language to describe what you do and how great you are at it!…But I say Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!
I cannot tell you enough how much I appreciate your support and friendship through one of the toughest ordeals in my life. There is not a moment that goes by in the last week that I don’t think about how great you did at the jury trial… I will recommend your great service to everyone I come in contact with that may need you! My kids thank you too.
Just wanted to send you a quick note to say Thank You for all of your help in resolving my situation. …You have been great to deal with and have been very helpful throughout this entire ordeal. Thanks again.
I so appreciate your entire team’s efforts in my case. Your hard work, diligence and heads-up play really made all the difference in the outcome. I will forever be indebted.
I wanted to thank you for five years of freedom. A bottle of Dom Perignon is in the mail.
