Theft and fraud charges are the most commonly filed criminal charges in Chelsea and elsewhere in Alabama. Theft charges can take many different forms, including robbery, burglary, auto theft, grand theft, shoplifting, fraud, and embezzlement.
In the vast majority of these cases, a defendant is not caught in the act. Instead, a circumstantial case is built based on a paper trail, eyewitness testimony or the discovery of stolen items in a defendant’s possession.
With an aggressive and experienced defense, these charges can be beat, or a reduction or dismissal of the case can be won. It’s important that a defendant makes no statements to the police. In many cases, statements a defendant makes can be among the most damaging evidence used to secure a conviction.
