Aggressive, Skillful and Experienced Defense

Iowa City man arrested for theft charges

Being accused of a crime in your community is a damaging experience. Not only is a person facing potential criminal penalties, but they likely are experiencing damage to their personal and professional reputation. Because of this, it is important to understand how to address these allegations, as they could have major impacts on a defendant's life.

According to reports, an Iowa City man was arrested for a supposed theft. The 39-year-old man was accused of second-degree theft. This crime is a Class D felony. Reports indicate that this suspected crime took place back in January.

Based on legal documents, video footage shows the defendant taking a bag from a restaurant. The bag in question allegedly contained $4,000. When questioned by law enforcement about this incident, the accused supposedly states that it could have happened but he doesn't remember. No other evidence or statements were reported at this time.

Whether it is video footage, collected evidence or witness accounts, it is important that defendants understand that there are ways to challenge the criminal evidence used against them. If police did not lawfully collect evidence, a warrant was not properly issued, evidence was mishandled or any other issue occurred, this could help a defendant assert a defense against the allegations that they are facing.

There are mechanisms that can be used to suppress evidence, helping a defendant reduce or even dismiss the charges against them. Initiating a strong defense is a defendant's best chance at protecting their rights and even clearing his or her name.
