In California, anyone who steals the property of another or fraudulently appropriates property entrusted to him or her, or who defrauds another of their property, is guilty of theft.

Theft of property or money of a value greater than $400 is Grand Theft, and may be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony.  All other theft is Petty Theft.

If you have been arrested for theft — theft of funds or property, of a credit card, of someone else’s identity — you are in big trouble. You could be looking at years behind bars, substantial fines, a criminal record as a felon, separation from loved ones and damage to your personal and professional reptuation.

You could also face irreparable harm to employment or housing prospects, owing to background checks conducted by business owners, property owners and landlords. Toss in incredibly strict probation conditions, where virtually every one of your movements is monitored, and you have some idea of what life will be like after conviction for a serious theft crime like burglary, armed robbery and home invasion.

At this trying time in your life, you need a criminal defense attorney behind you with years of successful service to past clients just like you, knowledge of the inner workings of our courts and a tradition of personal service that comforts your concerns.

In Santa Ana and surrounding areas, that aggressive advocate is Sal Ciulla, founder of the Law Office of Salvatore P. Ciulla — where our motto is “Just win.”

Sal Ciulla has over 25 years experience handling theft cases.  He knows that punishment in theft cases varies depends on the circumstances of the case — issues such as the value of the loss, the sophistication of the theft, and the background of the defendant will dictate the outcome.
