Maryland Property Crimes
Someone charged with theft in Maryland could be charged with any number of crimes including, but not limited to:
Receiving stolen goods
Unauthorized use of a credit/debit card
Unauthorized use of a credit/debit card pin or password
Theft under $100
Theft over $100, but under $1,000
Theft between $1,000 and $10,000
Theft between $10,000 and $100,000
Theft over $100,000
While the penalties of these charges vary depending on the severity of the charges, the consequences are more serious than just fines, restitution and jail time. A guilty finding to any of Maryland’s theft statutes can cause someone to be unable to effectively testify at trial for as long as 15 years after the conviction.
Successful handling of cases stemming from shoplifting or stealing charges involve intense pre-trial investigation of the facts, and a determination of exactly how the State intends to prove the facts and elements required for a conviction. If there are video or surveillance tapes that the state intends to introduce, hiring a lawyer sooner rather than later will allow the proper amount of time to investigate the authenticity of the video intended to be introduced at trial.
