What is theft?

Theft crimes range in severity from minimal misdemeanors to serious felonies. Typically, the type of charges depend upon the value of the property, the type of property, and the method used to remove it. In order to be found guilty of theft, the prosecution must prove that you took another individual’s property without his or her consent, and that you had a clear intent to permanently remove the property from his or her ownership.

Types of theft include:

  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Petty theft
  • Receiving stolen property
  • Electronic theft
  • Shoplifting
  • Identity theft
  • Embezzlement
  • Theft of intellectual property

Sentences depend on the severity of the theft and can range from:

  • Criminal fines
  • Jail time
  • Federal prison time

Know Your Defense Options

At The Law Office of Lesa Pamplin, P.C., we can build an aggressive and effective defense for your case to fight for your freedom and your reputation. One of the most common defenses against theft charges is to argue the element of specific intent. Essentially, this means that you had other, lawful intentions in mind when you committed the alleged offense. Another common defense that is used for charges of possession of stolen property is ignorance, whereby you did not know that the property was stolen. These defenses are hard to prove and require a competent and aggressive criminal attorney who knows what it takes to win cases.
