Accused of Robbery or Theft?
Should I contact Levine Law if I am accused of theft in Wisconsin?

It is vital to have the evidence and allegations against you analyzed by an experienced criminal defense theft lawyer.
There are a wide range of theft crimes under Wisconsin law. The penalties you face will depend on the type of theft crime you are charged with, the value of the stolen property and whether you have any previous convictions.

What are the penalties for theft charges in Wisconsin?
