Defense Against All Theft Charges
My name is Tim Kelly, and I have more than 20 years of experience defending against theft charges of all types, including:
- Auto theft
- Embezzlement and employee theft
In Washington, theft is classified not in terms of petty theft and grand theft, but in terms of first-degree theft, second-degree theft or third-degree theft, with first-degree theft being the most serious felony theft charge. This classification is based on the type of goods allegedly stolen and the value of those goods.
In addition to defending against theft crimes, I also defend against robbery and burglary charges, which tend to be more serious and may involve violence or weapons.
