If your or a family member has been charged with theft, burglary, or a related crime, you may be facing significant jail time, particularly if the crime involved a weapon or the use of force, in which case it is considered robbery. Contact Co & Associates to protect your rights and minimize any potential consequences.
Based in Hewlett, New York, we represent clients from Nassau County, Suffolk County and the boroughs of New York City.

Shoplifting

Retail theft of merchandise can be a misdemeanor or a felony crime, depending on the value of merchandise stolen (more or less than $400). Sentencing is increased for previous shoplifting convictions. First offenders may qualify for the Nassau County's special education programs which can result in the dismissal of charges or a plea bargain to a lesser offense. Repeat offenders can be jailed for up to a year for misdemeanors and one year and more for felony theft.

Burglary

Entering a residence or business unlawfully to steal merchandise is a felony crime, which can be punishable by a sentence of up to two to five years in prison. We can sometimes obtain a plea bargain on these charges to lesser charges that do not require prison sentences.

Robbery

The act of stealing property by force or by the threat of violence is defined as robbery. This is considered a felony and may result in imprisonment of up to fifteen (15) years. If you have been charged with stealing property, contact a Co & Associates defense attorney. Based in Hewlett, New York, we represent clients from Nassau County, Suffolk County and the boroughs of New York City.
