Understanding Nebraska’s Theft Laws
Are you facing an investigation into a theft crime or have you already been arrested? You most likely have questions and concerns about how this will affect your life and how best to handle the situation. A theft accusation is a serious matter that can have a negative impact on your future and, in many cases, your freedom. Not only will you face criminal penalties, but future opportunities can be lost or denied when a theft conviction is found on your record through a standard background check. Furthermore, if you are not a U.S. citizen, a theft conviction can impact your immigration status.
