A Lawyer That You Can Trust

Petty Theft

Torrance Petty Theft Laywer


While a prosecutor for the Los Angeles County District Attorney’s Office, Pat Carey prosecuted thousands of petty theft cases.  Petty Theft is a misdemeanor crime punishable in the county jail for up to 6 months.  Court fines can exceed $1,000 as well if you are convicted.

The key to a Petty Theft defense, as with almost any criminal charge, is being pro-active.  Pat Carey uses his connections in law enforcement and the DA’s office in an effort to stop your case in it’s tracks before it even makes it to court.  If your case does make it to court, Pat uses every resource in the book and beyond to have your case outright dismissed.

Petty theft is a charge which can have drastic effects on your future as it is a so-called “crime of moral turpitude.”  A conviction could impact your ability to keep or obtain a job, can lead to consumer credit issues, and perhaps most importantly can significantly damage your reputation.
