Leesburg Attorney Defending Against Florida Theft and Burglary Charges

Leesburg Attorney Defendi…

The number of possible criminal charges involving the taking of property is significant. People accused of theft, burglary and other property crimes often do not believe they have done anything wrong.

When you've been accused of theft or a related crime, you need a criminal defense attorney who is fully prepared to sort out the legal and evidentiary issues necessary to effectively defend your rights. I am Jody L. Fisher, a central Florida criminal defense lawyer and former Florida prosecutor with offices in the Leesburg community. Contact me to schedule a consultation about your property crime charges.

Understanding Florida Theft and Burglary Charges

Under Florida law, there are a wide variety of crimes involving the theft of property or otherwise illegal behaviors involving property. There are a variety of different defenses I can assert to challenge the prosecution's proof of guilt.

I can handle many different Florida property crimes including:

  • Theft
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Identity theft
  • Forgery
  • Fraud

The differences between these often conflated crimes can be subtle. For example, burglary is technically the act of breaking and entering a building in order to commit a crime (usually a property crime), while robbery legally must involve the use of force or the threat of force to steal something. I understand these minute differences and I can use my knowledge to put together a strong legal defense.
