Serious Defense Against Theft And Fraud Charges

Four Facts About Theft

  1. Theft happens when property changes hands without authorization.
  2. The stolen item may be money, property, a vehicle, merchandise or services.
  3. The accused must have intended to steal the property. Threat, violence or deception may have played a role.
  4. If you come into possession of property that you know is stolen, that is another form of theft.

Many people, especially young people, get into trouble for property crimes. Property crimes range from petty theft and shoplifting to more serious theft — stealing a car or other valuable property. The dollar value of the stolen property distinguishes petty theft from grand theft.

There is white collar theft, such as embezzlement. And there is fraud — theft by misrepresentation.
