Theft Crime Defense Attorney in Gilbert

Charged with Misdemeanor or Felony Theft in Mesa, Tempe, Chandler, or Gilbert? Call (480) 568-2778 Now

Theft crimes are among the most commonly committed crimes in Arizona, but that doesn’t make this offense any less serious. Even if you’ve only been charged with misdemeanor theft, you could potentially face up to 6 months in jail, and thousands of dollars in fines and fees. If you’re accused of felony theft, the penalties are far more severe.

Attorney Ryan McPhie and his experienced team are here to help. We’ve served residents of Maricopa County and the entire East Valley for more than a decade, and have handled cases in nearly every court in the region. As a former Deputy County Attorney, Ryan McPhie has unique insight into your case – and what it takes to win.

Strong Defense Against Felony Charges

A felony charge is much more serious, but not all felonies are the same. The Class or “level” of the felony you’re charged with will depend on the value and the type of property in question.

  • $25,000 or more – Up to 5 years in prison
  • $4,000- $25,000 – Up to 3.5 years in prison
  • $3,000- $4,000 – Up to 2.5 years in prison
  • $2,000- $3000 – Up to 1.5 years in prison
  • $1,000- $2,000 – Up to 1 year in prison

The theft of a motor vehicle, no matter what the value, will automatically be charged as a Class 4 felony, which may lead to 2 ½ years behind bars. Likewise, the theft of a firearm or animal will also result in felony charges, regardless of what the value may be.

If you haven’t been convicted, you aren’t out of options. Call us today at (480) 568-2778 to learn more.‚Äč
