Howard Snader is a Criminal Law Specialist Certified by the Arizona Board of Legal Specialization, defending people charged with property crimes like:
- Burglary: This is the breaking an entering of a person’s home with the intent to commit a theft or felony.
- Theft: A person commits a theft when they exert control over another’s property without authority, and with intent to deprive that person permanently of that property.
As a former Maricopa County prosecutor, Howard Snader knows that prosecutors want to charge you with a felony instead of a misdemeanor. Seeking to inflict harsher penalties on a person, they want to send a criminal defendant to jail instead of giving them probation.
Burglaries and thefts are serious charges to face. If convicted, you face serious penalties. Depending on the amount stolen, a theft can be charged as anything from a simple misdemeanor, up to a Class 2 felony. Charged as either first, second, or third degree, burglary charges inflict harsher sentences than thefts. Contact the Law Offices of Howard A. Snader, LLC to learn more about a first degree burglary and theft charge.
If there is an available defense, Howard Snader will find it and aggressively advocate for you during trial. In a burglary case, the state must prove you acted intentionally. We have successfully challenged countless cases by pointing out the flaws in the state’s case. During a theft case, I have defended people charged by arguing that the victim consented to your control over the property.
