Property Crimes

Property crimes involve the taking of money or property, and often result from times of financial stress. Crimes in this category are addressed by Chapter 164 of Oregon Revised Statutes and include theft, shoplifting, robbery, embezzlement, fraud, forgery, computer crimes, mail crimes, money laundering, burglary, trespass, arson, vandalism and criminal mischief.

These are understandable events in today’s difficult economic climate. Maybe you wrote a bad check at a time that you were desperate, or borrowed some money that you planned to pay back. Maybe you did worse. Whatever the case, you need to proactively work to protect your rights and future against damaging criminal charges. There may be alternatives to a criminal record, and we can help you pursue them.

If you are charged with a property crime, you could be facing a large prison sentence, significant fines and other consequences. Sometimes, reductions in the seriousness of the crime can be negotiated. If you are not guilty, you need a strong advocate to fight for the truth. We listen to the specifics of each client’s unique situation, and develop an optimum strategy through the legal system, whether it be a plea agreement or taking your case to trial.
