Often times, the penalties and collateral consequences for convictions of property crimes are as severe as the penalties related to convictions for violent offenses. In addition to facing jail time, fines, and probation, a conviction for a property or public peace crime may make it more difficult for you to obtain a job, housing, or educational loans.

One of the biggest mistakes you can make is talking to the police without having an attorney with you.
