Call me today at (410) 630-4274 if you’ve been arrested or accused for a theft crime.
In the state of Maryland, potential penalties are punished according to the amount of the property that was taken. Therefore, anything equaling $1,000 or more can be charged as a felony offense.
Misdemeanors, on the other hand, carry shorter prison sentences and smaller fines, but your freedom and your hard-earned money are still on the line. If you are found guilty without prior convictions on your record, you can face up to 18 months in prison. If, however, you have a prior record, you can face up to 5 years in prison, even for property valued at less than $1,000.
Whether you’ve been charged with entering another’s home, or if you’ve been accused of taking something by force, my firm can help. As an experienced Baltimore criminal defense lawyer, I know how to create a solid strategy that always keeps your best interests in mind.
