We Defend Theft, Robbery, and Burglary Allegations
These offenses are often abused by law enforcement
We know that not every “burglary” is a burglary, not every “robbery” is a robbery, and not every “theft” is a theft. The distortion of these criminal offenses by law enforcement in an attempt to unfairly increase penalties for relatively minor crimes is something that we at The Law Offices of Christopher Scott Maher find particularly disgusting. For example, we have seen people charged with burglary for bouncing a check at a store; we have also seen people charged with robbery for what was obviously a shoplifting offense.
On other hand, we have seen people charged with these crimes when in fact our investigation reveals they are entirely innocent.
We have the skill and knowledge to handle the entire range of these cases
There are many gradations of Robbery, Burglary, Theft, and similar offenses. It takes a deep understanding of Ohio law to advise a client on the proper application of a particular set of facts to the criminal laws as laid out in the Ohio Revised Code. Often there is a very thin line between an aggravated robbery and a petty theft or between a trespassing offense and a burglary.
At The Law Offices of Christopher Scott Maher we will answer these questions and we will protect your rights by ensuring your fair treatment, and if necessary, we will try your case to a jury.
