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.

Where could I begin to say thank you for all you have done for Kevin and I. You have held our hands and calmed us down through the most difficult moments in this case. You’ve always remained positive, supportive and optimistic. We had a great outcome and couldn’t have agreed more with you on all your decisions. Thank you for always answering all of our questions and being patient while I was frustrated. I don’t know what we would have done without you both. You guys are AWESOME! We will forever have you in our hearts and lives. Because of you I have been given a second chance in life!!! Thank you for everything.
Thank you for all the hard work you put into [my grandson’s] case. It cost a lot of money but saving [my grandson’s] reputation and future is far more important. I would highly recommend your services to anyone in the same situation.
Just a note John to thank you again for your work and your great presentation in court. I liked you the first time we met back in July and I think you’re great. I can feel in my heart that you like to help people as you helped me. Thanks again John and Bless you!
I can’t thank you enough for all you did to give me such a favorable outcome to my legal challenges. You are a miracle worker! You are appreciated by my family and friends and me (of course) for all you did.
I wanted to thank you for five years of freedom. A bottle of Dom Perignon is in the mail.
Thank you for all you have done for me this past year! I know you’ve “got my back” and I would like you to know how much I appreciate you going above and beyond as my attorney and friend. You are THE BEST and I let people know.
I would like to thank you for everything you did for [my son]. I could never find a way to show you how much you did for him. I will always feel like I am in your debt. You made it so [my son] can have a normal life. Thank you.
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.
