The right options for your legal matters; the assurance to resolve them

A Capable Defense Against Property Crimes

There are a lot of different types of property crimes in Oregon. Most minor cases, such as petty theft or shoplifting, usually involve little more than the possibility of community service or probation, and can sometimes be dismissed once the property is returned or repaid. More major cases, such as robbery or white collar cases, can have enormous consequences and require a significant amount of work and expertise. Recently, Oregon voters approved Ballot Measure 57, which drastically increases the possible sentences for repeat offenders of most felony property crimes. If you are charged with a property crime or have any questions or concerns, call Daniel R. Kruse, Attorney at Law, at 541-249-4510 for a free consultation.

Determined Legal Representation In Any Property Crime Case

Daniel R. Kruse aggressively represents people throughout Oregon in every type of property case, ranging from petty theft to armed robbery to computer crimes, including:

  • Theft
  • Identity Theft
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • White Collar Crimes
  • Computer Crimes
  • Possession of a Stolen Vehicle
  • Unlawful Use of a Vehicle
  • Unlawful Entry into a Motor Vehicle
  • Forgery
  • Criminal Mischief
  • Credit Card Fraud
  • Shoplifting

“Crime spree” laws very rarely apply in Oregon, which means that separate charges can pile up very quickly, particularly given the nature of most property crimes. For example, a person charged with using someone else’s credit card, even just once, can be charged with separate counts of Theft, Identity Theft, Fraudulent Use of a Credit Card, and Computer Crime. A person accused of taking money from an employer over time can be charged with a separate count of Theft and Forgery for every single transaction that is alleged. Under Oregon law, people charged with multiple property crimes in a single case can be treated as habitual offenders, even if they have no other prior convictions.

Because there is such a wide array of property crimes in Oregon, and because the possible risks can vary from community service to several years in prison, it is important to understand exactly what type of case you are facing. Having an attorney with experience in these types of cases can make an enormous difference.
