As reports of property crimes are increasing throughout Oregon, particularly in more rural areas, the media and law enforcement agencies are on high alert for situations in which it could be argued that a theft, scam, or burglary is taking place.
In many of these instances, however, there is no actual crime being committed, and innocent people are being unfairly targeted and punished. With over 30 years of experience, our attorneys are committed to helping you understand your legal rights and fighting fiercely to secure you the best possible outcome.
Understanding Property Crimes in Oregon
The term “property crime” encompasses a wide range of crimes, including theft, burglary, robbery, shoplifting, vandalism, arson, identity theft, phone scam fraud, elder fraud, and more. In order to secure a conviction, the prosecution must present compelling evidence that indicates that you did, in fact, commit the crime. As your attorneys, we will fight back, scrutinizing the conditions under which the evidence was collected and questioning the validity of the evidence itself. If you have any previous property crimes convictions, you could face much harsher consequences if you are found guilty, so we will dedicate our efforts to building you the strongest defense we can.
