Theft and Property Crimes

The law in Massachusetts is written to protect its citizens and their property. Theft crimes are taken seriously and prosecuted vigorously in Suffolk, Norfolk, and Middlesex County courts. There are misdemeanor theft crimes such as shoplifting, and there are also felonies such as Armed Robbery that can send you to prison for the rest of your life. It is absolutely essential to have a criminal attorney represent you in these cases where you are facing long prison sentences. With many theft crimes there are complex elements that the prosecution must prove, and large amounts of evidence to be evaluated. Many people steal to support a drug or alcohol habit, or because they have fallen on difficult financial times. Attorney Hinman will work with you to determine any underlying issues that can be treated or addressed. For example, Massachusetts has several programs that may be able to assist you and your family, and treatment facilities for those suffering from addiction. As a former prosecutor, Attorney Hinman has the experience necessary to build a strong defense and negotiate with the District Attorney’s Office to get the charges reduced when possible.
