There are six degrees of larceny in Connecticut. Each is based on the value of the item or items taken. When the stolen property is valued at less than $1,000, the charge is a misdemeanor, and when the property is valued at $1,000 or more, it is a felony offense. At Patriot Law Group, our attorneys defend clients facing larceny charges throughout Connecticut.
Talking to the prosecutor and trying to explain away the crime may not do you any good. Here is what you should do: Call Patriot Law Group at 1-800-459-PATRIOT and ask about scheduling a FREE consultation. You can also use our online form to set up an appointment.
We Can Help You More Than You May Think
No case is exactly like any other. Therefore, we cannot guarantee the same result for you that we have achieved for others. Notwithstanding this, we know the ins-and-outs of the criminal justice system. In some instances, we may be able to have your case dropped before charges are even filed. Contrary to common belief, it is the state's attorney who decides whether to file charges in Connecticut; not state, local or campus police. So, once your prosecutor receives the report, our criminal defense attorneys can contact him or her and present your side of the story.
If factors such as inadmissible evidence, improper procedure, lack of probable cause, illegal arrest, unlawful search and seizure, or other crucial factors exist, we can file a pretrial motion to suppress. If successful, the entire case could be dismissed or the state's attorney could have the most incriminating evidence thrown out.
