At Huppertz & Powers, S.C., our Wisconsin lawyers have more than 40 combined years of experience helping people accused of all kinds of property crimes in Wisconsin, from identity theft to shoplifting. The first meeting is on us.
Types of Property Crimes
A “property crime” is any crime that involves taking or using other people’s property against their wishes. In Wisconsin, identity theft is rapidly becoming one of the most common property crimes. Our Waukesha lawyers can help people accused of the following property and theft crimes:
- Theft: Taking others’ property without their permission.
- Burglary: Entering someone’s house or business intending to commit theft or some other crime.
- Shoplifting: The law also calls shoplifting “retail theft.”
- Car theft
- Armed Robbery
There are many strategies our Waukesha attorneys can use to help someone facing an arrest or property crime charge. Even if our client cannot argue a convincing case of innocence, we can make restitution to the alleged victim, which may reduce punishments to a fine. We can also plead a noncriminal offense and gather evidence toward a dismissal of all charges.
