New York Theft Crime Lawyer

Theft Crimes Charges for Immigrants

The United States government does not tolerate criminal activity on the part of immigrants who are in this country on a visa or green card. If you are trying to gain U.S. citizenship, a criminal charge against you could ruin your chances. Theft crimes are crimes which involve one person taking another's property without permission.

There are two different kinds of theft - petty theft and grand theft. Petty theft is charged as a misdemeanor, with penalties including time in jail, fines, and probation. Grand theft is a more serious crime with heavier penalties based on the value of the property being greater.

We represent individuals throughout Queens, Brooklyn, The Bronx, Manhattan, Rockland County and Westchester County.

Types of Theft Charges

There are several common forms of theft crimes in New York, including:

  • Identity theft
  • Auto theft
  • Embezzlement
  • Shoplifting
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Credit card theft

If you've been charged with any of these offenses, it is imperative that you seek legal counsel from a knowledgeable New York immigration lawyer. Especially if you are a non U.S. citizen, you will want to avoid anything that can provide grounds for deportation. In a large number of cases, especially those involving petty theft or a first-time offense, a good attorney can negotiate in your favor for a reduction and removal of criminal charges.
