CRIMINAL DEFENSE ATTORNEY IN NORTH CAROLINA
Crimes involving larceny — such as shoplifting, breaking and entering, and embezzlement — can affect your record forever.
At the Sparrow Law Firm, we advise and represent clients charged with misdemeanor and felony larceny. Our office was founded by Raleigh larceny and shoplifting charges attorney Michelle Sparrow, a former assistant prosecutor who can identify unreliable police reports, mishandled evidence and untrustworthy testimony. Eyewitness testimony is often unreliable because burglaries and business thefts usually occur at night when visibility is reduced. Surveillance footage — especially in shoplifting cases — is often grainy and unclear.
Don’t forget that under the U.S. Constitution, you are not only innocent until proven guilty, but you also have the right to remain silent. If you have been charged with a crime, use that right. Consult with an attorney before making any statements to the police that could later be used against you. Contact us today to schedule a flexible appointment or a free initial phone consultation to discuss larceny and shoplifting charges.
DEFENDING CLIENTS AGAINST LARCENY ALLEGATIONS
In our work defending clients we build the strongest case possible for them, consulting forensic specialists, finger print experts, handwriting analysts and private investigators when determining if any loopholes exist in the evidence obtained against our clients.
Our hands-on perspective helps us effectively defend clients facing serious larceny charges, such as:
- Obtaining property by false pretenses
- Breaking and entering
- Check fraud
- Credit card fraud
- Possession of stolen property
PROTECTING YOU DURING CRIMINAL INVESTIGATIONS
When a person is arrested for larceny — especially in cases involving credit card fraud and breaking and entering — police officers often try and connect them to other unsolved crimes of a similar nature. We can challenge whether or not they have reasonable grounds for searching your property, interrogating you or connecting you to other crimes. If your constitutional rights were violated in any way while police were gathering evidence against you, we can argue to have the evidence suppressed.
WHEN A PLEA BARGAIN IS THE ONLY OPTION
If you admit the commission of a larceny-related crime, it may still be possible to reduce the consequences and penalties you face. In these circumstances, a plea negotiation could net you lesser charges, smaller fines, less attorney fees and might even keep you out of jail.
