Theft is a complicated area of law. In order to be found guilty, the prosecution must prove beyond reasonable doubt that the person took property belonging to another person dishonestly.

Theft allegations include:

  • Taking a vehicle
  • Shoplifting
  • Theft by finding
  • Handing stolen goods

Matters of theft are considered either way offences meaning they can be dealt with in either the Magistrates Court or the Crown Court. Within our criminal department, we have a solicitor with higher rights of audience, who is able to represent you from police interview through to the conclusion of any Crown Court case.

If you have been charged with theft or asked to attend a voluntary interview, we will represent you in interview, deal confidentially with any concerns that may arise, prepare your case taking any necessary statements and evidence that will add weight to your defence and represent you in the Magistrates Court or Crown Court.
