Embezzlement/Larceny by Employee

Theft from an employer is typically going to result in a felony charge regardless of the value.  We have handled numerous cases involving in excess of $200,000.   In most theft cases, we are able to prevent my clients from serving an active jail sentence.  We also frequently are able to achieve dismissals of the criminal charge on behalf of my client.  In those cases, we may be able to erase the record.  See the Expungment information.


Penalties for Conviction of a Theft Crime

If you are convicted of a theft crime, you could face a wide range of penalties. The seriousness of these penalties depends on many factors. These may include the type of offense, the value of the money or property allegedly taken and your prior criminal history.

Penalties can have a great affect on your life. In addition to incarceration or probation, your criminal record after a conviction can keep you from getting good jobs or living in certain places.

For this reason, it is important to take theft charges seriously by working with an experienced lawyer. At the DeCurtins Law Office, we have more than 25 years of experience representing people in North Carolina. We know the law on theft crimes and we know strategies that work to achieve the best possible results in North Carolina courts.

Many people who have been accused of theft are unsure what to expect. To learn more about theft crimes and the legal system, please visit my Theft Crimes Information Center.
