While many theft crimes are misdemeanors, the consequences for a felony theft conviction can be extremely serious: more than a year in prison and thousands of dollars in fines.
Before speaking with police and prosecutors, anyone charged with or being investigated for theft crimes should talk with a criminal defense attorney like Joe Friedberg first. His law firm, Joseph S. Friedberg Chartered, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, can ensure that law enforcement does not violate his clients' legal rights.

Depending on the value of the property allegedly stolen, the consequences can get much worse. Here in Minnesota, some theft-related crimes can lead to more than a decade behind bars. This is where a lawyer like Joe Friedberg comes in.
With more than 40 years of experience and more than 75 percent of his state jury trials ending in acquittals, few attorneys in Minnesota can boast of a record of success like Joe Friedberg's.
For charges such as robbery or burglary (entering a building without permission with the intent to commit a crime), Joe Friedberg can thoroughly investigate the charges and work with his own experts to find weaknesses in the prosecution's case. An excellent litigator, Joe will look into every opportunity to have the charges reduced or dismissed.
