Police say the man prefers high-end retailers, and believe that he carried out burglaries in Burbank. According to police, they have evidence connecting him to the theft of nearly $100,000 in designer handbags, jewelry, watches and other luxury items. Following the man’s arrest, police searched a storage facility that belonged to the suspect.

Burbank theft lawyer
If you’re facing theft charges in Southern California, your first move should be to hire an experienced, aggressive theft lawyer like Robert Helfend. Mr. Helfend has more than three decades of experience in defending Southern Californians in criminal matters.
His first priority will be to get charges against you reduced or dropped. This is exceptionally important when you’re facing felony charges in California. California’s Three Strikes Law means that people who accumulate felony convictions run the real risk of spending the rest of their lives in prison. That’s true even when the crimes they commit don’t rise to the level of lifetime incarceration.
Many Californians serve sentences that exceed the sentencing guidelines because they have a history of felony convictions. Each conviction requires the court to extend the term of incarceration, so a third conviction for a violent felony will lead to lifetime incarceration.
Don’t jeopardize your freedom by working with an attorney who won’t work aggressively on your behalf. Choose an experienced attorney to defend you in court.
