Guarding Against The Significant Consequences Of A Conviction

A theft conviction can have a devastating effect on your future. People will look at you differently if you have a theft conviction on your record. An employer may decide not to hire you, and a police officer checking your criminal history may treat you differently than someone with a clean record.

The Zerbe Firm represents people accused of theft crimes across southeastern Indiana, Kentucky and Ohio. Our firm strives to ultimately keep a one-time mistake from becoming a permanent criminal record. Call 812-270-9999 for a confidential consultation.

Protecting Your Reputation And Your Future

Our firm has the experience to defend you from all types of criminal charges, including:

  • Theft crimes such as shoplifting, writing bad checks, credit card fraud or embezzlement. Theft can result in a misdemeanor or felony charge, depending on the value of the goods.
  • Robbery that uses force, threats or intimidation to take another person’s property or money. Robbery is a felony regardless of the value of the item taken.
  • Burglary or breaking into another person’s home or business to commit a crime such as theft. Burglary is a serious felony.
