Auto Theft in Pennsylvania: How to Protect Your Rights Following Criminal Charges

Auto Theft in Pennsylvania: How to Protect Your Rights Following Criminal Charges

30 Years of Criminal Defense Experience in Media, Pennsylvania

For every 10 car thefts in the U.S. each year, only one arrest is made. When prosecutors handle a grand theft auto case, then, they tend to fight aggressively for a conviction.

Your rights in an auto theft case, though, remain the same regardless of the thoroughness shown and tactics used by police and prosecutors. These rights include:

  • The right to remain silent (almost no information you can provide the police will help your case. Almost all information you provide the police has the potential to damage your case).
  • The right to freedom from unlawful search and seizure (many car theft charges result from unlawful pullovers and unlawful searches).
  • The right to legal representation

If you have been accused of stealing a car, truck or motorcycle in Pennsylvania, contact the criminal defense attorneys of The Law Offices of John E. Kusturiss, Jr. Each of us is a former prosecutor and, together, we have a combined three decades of legal experience.

As former prosecutors, we are familiar with the time and resource constraints that prosecutors often face. You may feel that a conviction is assured. Prosecutors, though, often have little time to prepare for trial, and may be open to dropping or reducing charges, especially if we can demonstrate a weakness in the case against you. Our track record includes hundreds of successful results following charges involving theft.

Our consultations are free, we accept credit cards and are available weekdays as well as weekends and evenings by appointment. To contact The Law Offices of John E. Kusturiss, Jr., call 610-565-0240.
