Defense Lawyers for Clients Facing Property Crime Charges in Hinsdale, Elmhurst, and Across the Area

There are many ways in which a person may be charged with a property crime in Illinois. Some, like low-level shoplifting, may seem relatively minor while others, like large-scale credit card fraud, may involve complex prosecution and the threat of long-term incarceration. Regardless of the charges against you, a conviction of any property crime can have consequences that could last for the rest of your life. If you have been charged with a property crime, McMahon Law Offices is here to provide the representation you need and the personal service you deserve.

Understanding Property Crime Charges

A property crime refers to obtaining unauthorized control over the property—including services—of another through fraudulent, deceptive, or otherwise criminal means. Theft is perhaps the commonly recognized form of property crime, but there is a wide variety of other such offenses. Property crimes also include:

  • Shoplifting and retail theft;
  • Burglary;
  • Robbery;
  • Trespassing;
  • Identity theft;
  • Credit card fraud;
  • Forgery;
  • Theft of services;
  • Theft by false pretenses;
  • Possession of stolen property; and
  • Vandalism.

Property crimes may be prosecuted as misdemeanors or felonies depending on many factors, including the value of the property in question, where the alleged crime took place, and the status or nature of the victim. Such offenses may range from relatively minor, with penalties including probation and fines, to extremely serious, with consequences that could include 30 years or more in prison. As with most criminal offenses, a conviction will also leave a permanent mark on your record, potentially making it more difficult to obtain employment or certain types of housing.
