Work With Our Competent Lawyer to Protect You Against Jockey Boxing
Petty theft crimes are often related to drug use. An offender goes out looking for parked cars to break into and steal valuables from it and engages in what is called "jockey boxing." Jockey boxers steal in order to get money that they are most likely to spend on their drugs.
Jockey boxing or breaking and entering someone else's home at night with the intent to steal are examples of more serious crimes than petty theft like shoplifting. Here, J. Scott Dowdy steps in to defend your petty theft conviction that can result in a felony charge for you.
Depend on Our Attorney to Defend You Against a Theft Charge
The evidence produced by a law enforcement officer to tie a defendant to a crime constitutes major grounds of defense.
The first task of our attorney is to determine whether there are any grounds on which the case could be dismissed before a plea or trial. However, in case a defendant is caught with the stolen goods or has kept those in his house or car, it can definitely weaken the case. Our attorney probes the police with a number of questions to contest the theft charges.
- How the police got their information?
- Was it through eyewitness testimony?
- Do they have fingerprints?
- Was the culprit caught on a CCTV camera?
- How did the police catch the suspect?
