Theft, Shoplifting, Larceny Defense: Oklahoma City, OK: Martino Law Firm

Larceny is the legal term used in Oklahoma for any type of theft offense.  Whether you have been charged with Petit Larceny (Misdemeanor) or you are facing the more serious offense of Grand Larceny (Felony), I can help you.  I can defend against all types of larceny, including:

  • Retail Theft
  • Shoplifting
  • Embezzlement
  • Check Fraud
  • Credit Card Fraud
  • Employee Theft
  • Car Theft
  • Identity Theft
  • Livestock Theft
  • False Pretenses
The severity of the penalty you face in a larceny case depends upon the amount of money or value of the property that was allegedly stolen. For cases involving a value of $500.00 or more, the penalty is 0-5 years in prison with mandatory probation upon release. If the value is less than $500.00, the penalty is 0-1 year in county jail and up to $5000.00 in fines. If the value is $10.00-$500.00, the crime is called Petit Larceny and you face the misdemeanor penalty of 0-6 months in jail and a fine of up to $500.  In addition to jail and fines, you could be ordered to pay restitution back to the alleged victim equal to the value of the stolen property.

Often times, victims of these type of crimes inflate the value of the missing property in an attempt to "cash  in" on a higher restitution amount. I can help guard against inflated estimates of the value of alleged stolen property by demanding that receipts be shown or obtaining an independent valuation of said property.

Even the least serious cases can result in a permanent mark on your record that could eventually impact your ability to pursue you education, advance you career and secure housing. Contact me today so that I may help you avoid these consequences and keep your life on track.
