Defense Against Theft and Property Damage Charges
Property crimes typically fall into two categories: theft of property and damage to property.
If you are facing criminal charges in a Utah state court for a property crime or a federal charge for destruction of government property, you need a criminal defense attorney with experience and dedication.
Do not talk to friends or family members about what happened, even if the damage to property was accidental. Statements that you make to friends or family members (other than spouses) may be used against you in court if they are called to testify against you. Talk to a Utah property crimes lawyer at the law office of Greg Smith and Associates by contacting us online or calling 801-651-1512.
