Have you been charged with THEFT?
Cullen Burke, Esq. (410) 723-6500 | Office Number
Judges in the jurisdictions where I practice take theft cases very seriously.
It is not uncommon for jail sentences to be imposed.
Don’t fool yourself by thinking “It was only a $20 T-Shirt…I won’t go to jail. That’s such a petty theft…”
The value of the item (or lack thereof) is not a huge factor in these types of cases.
They need to be handled very carefully so as to avoid a jail sentence.
It also looks absolutely terrible to have a theft conviction on your record.
This is something you would be explaining to potential employers for the rest of your life. And everyone takes theft charges seriously for job applicants.
If you need help or just someone to talk to call me. – Cullen Burke, 410-723-6500
