Casino Theft and Criminal Charges in Atlantic City

Stealing from a casino in Atlantic City can earn you criminal charges ranging from disorderly persons offenses to crimes in the second degree. You can face anywhere from a few nights in jail to many years in prison and fines between $200 and $75,000 or more. If you find yourself charged with casino theft in Atlantic City, call an experienced casino theft defense attorney immediately.

I am criminal defense lawyer John W. Tumelty. With decades of experience as a defense attorney and former prosecutor, I have gained the insight and skill required to put forth exceptional defense representation for my clients. I not only take the time to learn about each client’s goals, but also invest myself in looking at each case from the prosecution’s point of view. This enables me to prepare a comprehensive strategy geared at defeating the casino crime charges and getting the evidence thrown out of the case.

Representing Individuals Facing Any Casino Theft Charge

As a skilled casino defense attorney in Atlantic City, I am here to assist casino employees and patron charged with any theft crime throughout Atlantic County and the surrounding areas, including:

  • Writing bad checks
  • Writing bad markers
  • Token or chip theft
  • Swindling and cheating

If a casino catches you in the act of theft, it will report you to the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement. You can then be brought to court to face trial. Do not attempt to represent yourself in any interactions with the casino or the division. Whatever you say can be used against you. Allow me to help you understand your charges, protect your rights and craft a defense strategy that is in your interests.
