Defense Against Charges Of Theft Or Fraud
Theft allegations can have serious consequences. Depending on the dollar amount, thefts can be charged as a felony crime. Any conviction for theft or fraud on your record can be a barrier for employment or career paths.
At The Law Office of Perry Thomas PLLC, you are represented by a proven criminal defense attorney. I was a prosecutor for many years, which helps me deconstruct the case against you. From a shoplifting arrest to major financial crimes, my experience can make a favorable difference in the outcome.

Theft And Property Crimes
I have handled hundreds of misdemeanor and felony cases over my career, including:
- Shoplifting and misdemeanor theft
- Felony theft (value of $2,500 or greater)
- Possession of stolen goods
- Auto theft
I will pursue all defense angles to try to get charges dismissed or reduced. Sometimes the victim will accept restitution in lieu of pressing charges. Some offenses may be eligible for alternatives to jail such as probation or deferred prosecution.
White Collar Crimes
I have also prosecuted and defended “white collar” financial crimes such as:
- Embezzlement from an employer or nonprofit
- Theft by fraud or deception
- Credit card theft
- Identity theft
- Money laundering
In a white collar case the government must prove ill-gotten gains and criminal intent. There may be defenses, such as others who had the means to commit the crime. There may be mitigating factors, such as a drug or gambling addiction. I will challenge the allegations or work to negotiate a favorable outcome.
I Understand What Is At Stake
A theft conviction may carry jail or prison time, and it can interfere with job opportunities, professional licenses, higher education or housing. My goal is to limit the impact on your freedom and your future. Put my experience to work. Call me at 325-939-2419 for a free consultation or reach me by email.
