Long Beach Theft Crime Lawyer

There are a variety of theft crimes you can be charged with. Taking someone's property without consent is commonly regarded as theft. If you buy or store something that was stolen, even if circumstances are unknown to you, it can still be regarded as theft. Theft is charged as misdemeanors and felonies depending on seriousness.

Understanding Criminal Charges of Theft

If another individual was injured, or a weapon was used to coerce stolen goods, it will likely be charged as a felony. Penalties can include jail time, hefty fines, and a permanent criminal record. Factors that determine the severity of the penalty include the value of the property, from whom the property was stolen, and what kind of property was stolen. If it can be proven that the property was not taken purposefully, theft charges may be dropped. This requires the aid of a seasoned lawyer who knows exactly how to provide the courts with the proper evidence. If you have been charged with a theft crime, please speak with a Long Beach criminal attorney today.

Charged with a Theft Crime?

Shoplifting consists of removing property from a store without paying for it and with intent to keep it in one's possession. If someone accidentally takes something from a store it may not be considered theft as such. An individual can be charged with theft even if the action of theft was not fully undertaken. This means that if you attempt to steal something and you fail, you can still be charged with the crime of theft. If the stolen property value is less than $500 it can be charged as a misdemeanor unless the person has prior misdemeanors or felonies. Above the value of $500 theft is charged as a felony. Penalties heighten in severity incrementally.
