Theft / Stealing

Theft is defined as the taking of another person’s property without their permission with the intention of permanently depriving them of that property. The potential charges and penalties you may face for a theft crime will vary drastically depending upon the offense itself, as well as a number of other factors such as the value of the property taken, the manner in which the crime was committed, the victim, the use of a deadly weapon, the possession of a weapon, and whether the victim sustained injury or loss of life. Even at the lowest level, these types of convictions may affect your ability to obtain employment. Misdemeanor Theft charges include Stealing or Shoplifting. Felony Theft charges include Robbery First Degree, Robbery Second Degree, Tampering with a Motor Vehicle, Burglary, and Stealing.
