Types of Theft Defenses

The Law Office of Jonathan Gonzales can help you find a defense solution that works in your case. This may include:

  • Claim of property ownership: In some cases, the person accused of theft was under the impression that property was theirs. If this is the case, the accused must provide some sort of evidence that validates this claim.
  • Intoxication: Being under the influence of drugs or alcohol can impair one's judgment. While the person is intoxicated, the theft could take place. There needs to be proof, however, that the person was intoxicated at the time.
  • Entrapment: It's possible that the accused was lured into committing the theft. The person could be set up by someone looking to prosecute the individual.
