Theft and Fraud Offenses
Theft and Fraud charges can range from first degree crimes to disorderly persons offenses, essentially spanning the criminal code in terms of the level of severity of the charges and the associated penalties. For example, robbery charges can result in up to 20 years of incarceration in New Jersey State Prison, while shoplifting charges may be resolved in Municipal Court with a diversionary program such as conditional dismissal if you have no prior criminal record. The variety of theft and fraud offenses should not in any way serve to diminish the seriousness of these allegations. Not only will a conviction appear on your criminal record, but you may face catastrophic collateral consequences, such as restitution payments and adverse effects for your immigration status.
Theft and fraud offenses are subsumed under the classification “crimes of moral turpitude.” As such, any theft or fraud charge can lead to negative implications for your immigration status and even deportation if you are not a permanent U.S. citizen. With long-term and sometimes permanently life-altering consequences, theft and fraud crimes must be addressed with a vigorous and comprehensive defense.
