If You Have Been Charged With Theft Crimes In Iowa

Theft crimes come in many varieties, ranging from petty misdemeanors handled through local or state courts to federal court-level felonies. The severity of charges and penalties typically depends on the value of what was stolen. Generally, theft of cash or property worth more than $1,000 will result in felony charges. Lawyers at Stowers & Nelsen in West Des Moines represent people charged with theft crimes such as:

  • Shoplifting
  • Larceny
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Auto theft
  • Lottery theft
  • Embezzlement
  • Credit card theft
  • Theft by way of fraud, such as by writing bad checks

Related criminal charges such as conspiracy or identity theft (ID theft) often go along with theft charges. As you evaluate law firms and decide who should defend you, consider how much experience the attorneys have had trying cases and appealing verdicts. Attorneys Dean Stowers and James Nelsen bring a wealth of experience beneficial to clients charged with misdemeanors or felonies in state or federal court.
