There are a wide range of theft crimes in North Dakota

In North Dakota, there are dozens of theft related crimes listed in the North Dakota Century Code. A theft is when a person knowingly takes or exercises unauthorized control of the property interest of another with the intent to deprive the owner thereof.  N.D.C.C. § 12.1-23-02(1)

Every case is different
Here is just one example of Mr. Edinger's zealous lawyering

State v. A.K. (Cass County, North Dakota)

Defendant was charged with felonious theft by deception. Defendant, a cashier at a convenience store, was accused of stealing from the store due to the fact the store books were off hundreds of dollars during his shifts. At the preliminary hearing, Mr. Edinger successfully argued the State did not prove there was probable cause to believe the defendant had committed the crime. Judge Steven E. McCullough agreed and dismissed the case. Besides the aforementioned, Mr. Edinger has obtained successful results in dozens of theft cases. He has successfully negotiated deferred imposition of sentence dispositions in dozens and dozens of cases. Under North Dakota law, if a person successfully completes the term of deferment, the charge becomes dismissed, the court file sealed, and officially the defendant is not convicted of the crime.
