Arizona Property Crime Laws
Title 13 of the Arizona Revised Statutes contains the state’s criminal code. Relevant theft laws include:
- Chapter 15 — Burglary
- Chapter 18 — Theft, shoplifting and issuing bad checks
- Chapter 19 — Robbery
- Chapter 20 — Forgery
- Chapter 21 — Credit card fraud
- Chapter 22 — Business and commercial frauds
Felony versus Misdemeanor Convictions
Some nonviolent thefts are at the cusp of a felony charge. Arrests for shoplifting and bounced checks may barely exceed the misdemeanor value threshold, but the consequences of a felony conviction are enormous.
A felony conviction generally results in a longer jail sentence, higher fines and long-term repercussions to voting privileges, immigration status and gun ownership rights. Furthermore, a felony theft conviction can seriously restrict your employment opportunities. Nesci & St. Louis considers it a priority to avoid or minimize incarceration and to reduce charges from a felony to a misdemeanor.
Understanding Armed Robbery and Burglary
A conviction for armed robbery or burglary in the second or third degree may result in a lengthy prison sentence. Sometimes these crimes are committed out of desperation and a lengthy prison term only perpetuate a vicious cycle.
Our Tucson property crime lawyers are your staunch defenders, demanding fairness in the criminal courts and taking decisive action to put you in the best position possible.
