Property Criminal Offenses in the State of Florida

Depending on the value of the property that is stolen or damaged, and the circumstances surrounding the offense, a property crime is classifies as either a misdemeanor or a felony. For instance, in most cases, theft is only a felony if the dollar value of the items in question is $300 or greater. A burglary, however, is always charged as a felony regardless of the value property taken, or even if no property was stolen at all. As with all other crimes, the burden of proof is on the prosecution, and criminal defense attorney Michael Salazar has built his practice on being able to demonstrate the reasonable doubt necessary to win an acquittal for his clients.
