Missouri has a lot of crimes aimed to protect against property. Some of them are very serious crimes, such as robbery and burglary, and some are less serious crimes like property damage. They can be mid-level misdemeanors all the way up to Class A felonies depending on the facts and evidence in each case. For instance, property damage, stealing, receiving stolen property, and leaving the scene of an accident can be misdemeanors or felonies, and burglary and robbery are solely felonies.
Regardless of the charge, defending these cases requires attention to details. A diligent criminal defense lawyer will ensure the prosecutor has enough evidence to prove every element of the offense. This may require evaluating evidence beyond the police report; there may be fingerprint evidence or DNA analysis. If you have a criminal charge or potential charge, ensure you have a thorough criminal defense lawyer evaluate and work on your case.
The criminal defense attorneys at The Lowry Law Firm thoroughly evaluate and assess all aspects of cases, including burglary, robbery, and stealing. They will not leave a stone unturned.
