Stealing, Theft & Robbery

Defending People From Crimes of Theft, Robbery and Shoplifting

Arrests for stealing, theft and robbery in Massachusetts put those facing charges at risk of having felony or misdemeanor convictions on their permanent records. Often, circumstantial evidence is used against a person who was simply in the wrong place at the wrong time.

If you are arrested for a crime in Lowell or the surrounding area, seek the help of an experienced and effective criminal defense lawyer.

The Law Office of Ryan P. Sullivan Provides an Aggressive Defense to Criminal Charges in Massachusetts

You have too much at stake to put off hiring an attorney at the first sign of trouble. As an experienced criminal prosecutor in Middlesex County, attorney Ryan P. Sullivan has handled nearly every type of criminal offense from the time of arrest through trial. He now applies those skills to aggressively defending you from whatever criminal charge you face, including:

  • Theft offenses: Crimes of theft include everything from armed robbery to larceny over $250, and may include crimes that don’t involve stealing, such as breaking and entering into a home or car.
  • Robbery: Putting a person in fear of harm while intending to steal from him or her can lead to a felony charge of robbery, which is punishable by multiple years in jail. Using — or showing — a weapon, robbing a person over the age of 60 or assaulting someone leads to more serious robbery charges.
  • Shoplifting: Shoplifting involves taking something without paying for it. Although shoplifting may seem like a minor offense, a conviction can affect not only your reputation, but also your ability to get a job, keep your current job or obtain a student loan.

Extortion and fraud are also acts of stealing, punishable by law in Massachusetts.
