What are Property Crimes?

Charges involving damage or a loss of property are known as property crimes. This is an umbrella term used to include theft, damage, and false pretenses where another person's property is stolen, damaged, or destroyed. You can also be charged with a property crime if you borrow something and fail to return it. Due to the wide variety of property crimes, a good legal defense is imperative.

How Property Crimes Affect You

Like crimes against individuals, property crimes are broken into felonies and misdemeanors. The type of property stolen or damaged, along with the value of that property, will weigh heavily on whether a crime is a felony or misdemeanor, and subsequently the type of consequences. The severity of the offense can also be the determining factor between being charged with a felony or a misdemeanor.

  • A true Icon of Justice

    “First, let me start by saying that Mr. Ben Jacob deserves to be recognized for his hard work and representation. There are really no words to express my gratitude and thanks for the outstanding effort in obtaining the exceptional outcome on my case. Mr. Jacob went above and beyond what any other Attorney has ever done for me. When I was remanded into the sheriff's custody the feelings of hopelessness and despair were overwhelming. The D.A. and the Judge made it clear that there were no chances left for me, and with a lifelong stigma of negative trailing behind me, I truly believed I was destined to stay in jail. Mr. Jacob kept my life from making a permanent turn in the wrong direction. Because Mr. Jacob truly cares about his clients and their well being I was released from custody. Ben Jacob not only believed in me he went to bat against the whole courtroom on my behalf. Mr. Jacob defends his clients with conviction and vigor, not backing down, and unwavering in his defense. Despite a troubled past and a bad reputation, Mr. Jacob treated me with dignity and respect. I'm able to be the mommy my two-year-old needs because Mr. Jacob believed in me when everyone else wanted me in custody. Mr. Jacob is a true artist in his profession. Thank You seems ridiculous in comparison to the true effect of Mr. Jacob’s impact in my life.”

    Simon

  • Helped me get my life on track.

    “I was in search of a lawyer to help me clear up some past issues, and to help me get all my legal stuff in order. When I called the office I was able to speak directly to him and tell him my story. We met a couple days later and I hired him on the spot. Very personable and down to earth, he was able to give me his opinions and the scope of what I would be looking at to get my issues resolved. On the days of court he met me at the courthouse and was able to defend me quickly and efficiently. I would highly recommend him to others in search of a good lawyer that will get things done.”

  • He got the felony dismissed and I served no time in custody

    Kady

  • Efficient, effective, and professional.

    “I initially hired Me Jacob for a fraud case that I was out on bail for in 2017. I caught 2 more cases and bailed out on them as well. Mr. Jacob fought for me for 4 years roughly and got my sentence reduced from 5 years four months at 80 percent to a 16 month with half and time served paper commitment in March of 2021. He was able to get 2 of my cases dropped and my motions passed. A hard feat to accomplish with my background and in Placer county court system. He didn't have much to work with and still made a miracle happen for me. It may have took some time 2017 to 2021 but he never gave up on me and provided service above and beyond my expectations .You should be so lucky to have him on your side in the courtroom and out.”
