Theft Defense Attorney
Theft defense charges in Oregon are considered very serious matters. These crimes can and often do lead to mandatory minimum prison sentences. While most identity theft charges stem from using other people’s Social Security numbers, bank accounts, checks or credit cards to purchase goods and services, these charges can take on many different forms. Attorney Robert L. Sepp helps protect the constitutional rights of his clients facing allegations or charges of forgery.
One of the most common theft crimes in Oregon is identity theft. As of 2007, Oregon was ranked 13th in the nation for identity theft. As such, this crime is one of the most common white collar crimes in Oregon.
Forgery is a serious offense and is dependent on the severity of the actions. Defendants can be charged with a single count or multiple counts in Oregon. Single counts often stem from forging a check or opening an account in someone’s name.
Robbery is a serious offense, and even more serious when a weapon is involved. It’s critical that you hire a robbery lawyer who possesses knowledge of and experience with the laws and consequences associated with robbery.
