Reliable Property Crime Defense Lawyers in Connecticut
What Is a Property Crime?
Property crimes encompass a broad range of charges, all of which involve
varying degrees of severity depending on the financial loss that the victim
suffered and whether or not violence was used in the commission of the
crime. Generally speaking, crimes against property are classified in two
categories. These include acts that involved acquiring property through
illegal means and those that involve the destruction of property through
illegal means. Charges may range from a relatively minor misdemeanor,
such as criminal mischief, to a Class A Felony, such as home invasion.
Some examples of crimes against property include:

Unique Challenges With Property Crime Cases
Property crime cases often bring about numerous complexities and challenges,
and usually involve a great deal more than simply making restitution to
the victim. It is possible that there could be disputes over how much
money the victim is owed for the stolen or destroyed property. In addition
to this, for those who have a prior criminal history, even the most minor
charges could lead to increased fines, jail time, and other harsher penalties.
Because property crimes are considered crimes of moral turpitude, a conviction
could also affect any professional licensing you currently have, your
ability to retain your job or obtain future employment, and more.
