Shoplifting And Additional Theft Crimes

Criminal defense lawyer Joseph Colarusso helps people charged with:

  • Theft
  • Possession of stolen property
  • Shoplifting offenses
  • Breaking and entering
  • Embezzlement
  • Larceny
  • Swindle
  • Theft by fraud
  • Grand larceny
  • Burglary or robbery

Theft cases are not always as straightforward as prosecutors and police would like suspects to believe. For example, in cases involving allegations of embezzlement or shoplifting, prosecutors must prove intent. Did a suspect willfully and intentionally steal an item from a store? Did a business partner or employee actually intend to defraud his company?

At the Law Offices of Joseph J. Colarusso, we expose unreliable circumstantial evidence and ungrounded assumptions on the part of prosecutors. Working with our own investigators and forensic accountants, we will point to evidence and eyewitness testimony that calls the prosecution's version of events into question.

A former prosecutor, Attorney Colarusso stays current on all facets of criminal law. He is a life member of the National Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers, the Connecticut Criminal Defense Lawyers Association and the New York State Association of Criminal Defense Lawyers.
