Ready To Protect Your Rights In Theft And Robbery Cases

Under Florida law, theft encompasses a range of property crimes involving the unauthorized taking of property that belongs to someone else. This includes larceny, stealing, misappropriation and other offenses.

Robbery is the taking of someone else's property while using force, violence or the threat of violence. A person who uses a firearm or other deadly weapon in the course of committing robbery may be charged with aggravated robbery, which is a first-degree felony punishable by up to life in prison.

Clearly, if you or a loved one faces criminal charges of theft or robbery, it is important to enlist the help of a knowledgeable criminal defense attorney who will review the facts of the case and recommend the best possible defense strategy. The law office of Charles L. Truncale, P.A., represents individuals across northeastern Florida who face theft or burglary charges.

Different Degrees Of Theft

The different degrees of theft are generally determined based on the value of the property taken. Petit theft involves stealing property with a value of less than $300. Grand theft involves stealing property valued at $300 or more. A conviction of grand theft comes with stiffer penalties than petit theft. However, it's important to work with a knowledgeable attorney.

Mr. Truncale is a former state and federal prosecutor who defends individuals in a wide range of criminal cases. He represents clients against these and other charges:
