A Pasadena man was arrested and charged with grand theft for his role in a Disneyland ticket scam. Brian Anderton, 43, of Pasadena, allegedly advertised Disneyland tickets for sale on Craigslist multiple times between January and August. Victims paid for the tickets, then learned that the tickets they’d purchased were invalid when they arrived at the park.
Anderton was charged with five counts of theft. He is accused of collecting at least $2,400 in the scam. If convicted on all counts, he faces up to five years in state prison.
Los Angeles Grand Theft Lawyer
Grand theft can be prosecuted as a felony or a misdemeanor, and can result in a variety of penalties, depending upon the circumstances of the case. Grand theft charges normally involve a theft in excess of $950, but in some cases, the charges may result regardless of the value of the item(s) in question.
Because there are so many circumstances, and different potential results, your best approach to defending against a theft charge is to hire an experienced grand theft lawyer like Robert Helfend. Mr. Helfend has more than 30 years of experience specifically in criminal defense. He takes cases in Los Angeles County and throughout Southern California.
He has established a reputation for being an aggressive defender of his clients’ rights, and will work hard to get the charges against you reduced or dropped. Mr. Helfend manages all cases personally, and does not pass cases to less experienced associates who may not have the experience that superior criminal defense requires.
Working with a less experienced attorney can put your freedom at risk. Working with a large law firm can mean that your case does not receive the personal attention it deserves. Don’t compromise!
