Theft by Deception Defense Attorney in Salt Lake City and Utah

Theft by Deception Defense Attorney in Salt Lake City and West JordanIn Salt Lake City and across Utah, a charge of “theft by deception” is an accusation that a theft occurred and that the person committing theft did so by tricking someone. For example, if you submit an insurance claim containing what you know to be false information, with the intention of obtaining a monetary settlement, you could be found guilty of theft by deception, because you would have obtained the insurance company’s property (in this case their money), by deceiving them with your false claim.

By adding charges of theft by deception, a misdemeanor theft charge can be bumped up to a felony and the consequences of any theft charge can be significantly greater. If you are charged with theft by deception in the Salt Lake City area or throughout Utah, do not be pressured into pleading guilty before you have consulted with a criminal defense attorney.
