Our Approach to Theft & Fraud Defence

When facing criminal charges related to theft and fraud, several effective defenses can be utilized to challenge the allegations. These defense strategies encompass showcasing a lack of intent to commit theft or fraud, which may involve proving that our client genuinely believed that he or she possessed rightful access to the property or funds in question. Employing defenses like challenging evidence validity and establishing a solid alibi to demonstrate the accused’s absence from the crime scene can further bolster the case. Additionally, if it can be demonstrated that our client was induced by law enforcement to commit the crime, the entrapment defense can be applied. Other viable defenses include asserting insufficient evidence, addressing mistaken identity issues, and establishing that our client had lawful permission to utilize the property or funds.

In this intricate legal landscape, the experience and insights of a seasoned criminal defense lawyer are indispensable in identifying the most fitting defense strategy based on the case’s unique circumstances.

Crown Prosecutor, Mr. Vayeghan brings unparalleled skill to this complex domain, adeptly navigating the nuances of each case and strategically implementing the most effective defense.
