Criminal defense attorney Ron Shook has years of criminal defense experience, and personally manages each client’s case. He has defended many clients against these types charges, often getting charges dismissed or reduced before trial. He understands how to present a case in a persuasive way to the prosecutor and the judge. If you are facing charges, you need to talk to a lawyer with the right experience to protect your rights.
(Note that we may associate an attorney in another firm to assist with some cases. We also, of course, employ capable support staff who handle various administrative aspects of cases.)
If you are facing charges of employee theft, do not discuss the situation with anyone but your lawyer, including co-workers and employers. Contact our Gastonia office to arrange an initial consultation.
We represent the interests of employees that have been charged with the theft of a number of different types of items, including:
- Office supplies
- Discarded materials
- Items for retail sale
We can advocate a defense that:
- your judgment was clouded by addiction or mental illness
- there is inadequate proof of your theft
- your theft is an accounting or inventory issue, not a criminal matter
- the amount of the theft can not be readily proven
The danger in employee theft cases lies with the permanency of the charges. That is, when you are charged, the charge stays on your criminal record forever. When background checks are done during searches for future employment, your theft conviction will surface. Prospective employers are often unforgiving when it comes to an employee who has been convicted of a theft from a previous employer. Your conviction will most likely affect your ability to secure employment in the future.
