What Is "Theft By Conversion"?

According to Georgia law, theft by conversion is when you lawfully obtain another person's money or property and then, unlawfully, convert it to your own use. Theft by conversion is also applicable to rental property that you fail to return to its owner upon demand. Such crimes are typically charged as misdemeanors. However, if the value of the money or property is greater than $500, then you will likely face felony charges.

To defend yourself, you need a criminal defense attorney. Indeed, the consequences of a conviction extend beyond legal penalties. You could lose your job or have difficulty getting hired, and lose important rights such as the right to legally possess a firearm and the right to vote. Based in Atlanta, we serve throughout the state and have earned a reputation for our successful representation of clients.
