Theft and Embezzlement Defense

If you have been accused of or charged with theft or embezzlement, turn to our staff at the Law Office of Ivan O.B. Morse. We take the time to put together all of the facts in the case to build an aggressive case for your defense.

Our representation includes handling a wide range of these types of theft cases, including:

  • Embezzlement
  • Petty theft
  • Grand theft
  • Identity theft
  • Shoplifting
  • Burglary

The possible punishments for these crimes can be serious. If convicted you could receive a minimum of 6 months in jail and/or a $1000 fine, or time in state with fines ranging from $5000 and more, plus restitution for felonies such as grand theft and similar type crimes.

It is sometimes possible to get these charges dismissed or felony charges reduced to a misdemeanor. Attorney Ivan O.B. Morse is skilled at helping clients understand the considerations involved in seeking to get charges reduced. Also, if a client is open to engaging in diversion programs, such as a theft awareness class, it may be possible to obtain a dismissal of the theft charges.

In embezzlement cases, much like fraud cases, it is sometimes beneficial to resolve the matter outside of the criminal justice system. This may include repayment of the embezzled funds and other stipulations set in place by the employer and/or business from which the money was obtained.
