You’re shopping in a store, you’re on your phone, you’ve got a million things going through your head, you forget you picked up an item, and you walk past the registers in the store.

If you’ve been arrested for grand theft, give our office a call. In most situations, we can get the charges dismissed.
Arrested When You Didn’t Intend to Steal?
It is very common to learn during consultations that a prospective client was arrested even though they didn’t intend to steal an item from the store. People make mistakes and can be forgetful, but in the case of grand theft, police officers will make the arrest and ignore the client’s side of the story. When police officers show up to a business, they frequently take the side of the business owner and ignore the side of the client. The police also figure they can resolve the situation by making an arrest and moving on with their day. It’s a terrible injustice when it happens but it happens all too often.
Get the Best Possible Outcome on Your Grand Theft Case
Any Miami criminal defense attorney with respect for the Florida Bar’s Code of Ethics will tell you they cannot promise or guarantee a specific result on the case. It is unethical to promise a dismissal. What I can tell you is that our office has a wealth of experience in handling grand theft cases, we frequently get them dismissed. Results are based on many factors, including attorney skill, client’s priors, facts of the case, the specific prosecutor you get, the judge you get, etc.
