Defending You From Theft Charges

A theft conviction can have a devastating effect on your future. People will look at you differently if you have a theft conviction on your record. An employer may decide not to hire you, and a police officer checking your criminal history may treat you differently than they would someone with a clean record.

At Zerbe Garner Blondell & Weldon, LLP, our goal is to keep a one-time mistake from becoming a permanent criminal record. With offices in Lawrenceburg, Cincinnati, West Chester and Florence, our lawyers represent people accused of theft crimes in Indiana, Ohio and Kentucky. Call 812-551-0436 for a confidential consultation.

Protecting Your Reputation And Your Future

Our lawyers have the experience to defend you from all types of criminal charges, including involving:

  • Theft crimes such as shoplifting, writing bad checks, credit card fraud or embezzlement. Theft may be charged as a misdemeanor or felony depending on the value of the item taken.
  • Robbery, which is using force, threats or intimidation to take another person's property or money. Robbery is a felony regardless of the value of the item taken.
  • Burglary, which is breaking into another person's home or business for the purpose of committing a crime such as theft. Burglary is a serious felony.

Is There A Defense To Theft Charges?

There is always something an experienced defense lawyer can do to protect you from the consequences of a conviction. For example, if this is your first offense, we may be able to resolve the charges without a conviction. You may also have defenses based on the facts of your case.

As a former prosecutor, attorney David L. Zerbe has a thorough understanding of how the state handles theft charges. He may be able to identify weaknesses in the state's case that would enable him to negotiate a favorable outcome.
