Defending Against All Theft Charges

There are different types of theft that a person can be charged with. It mostly depends on what was stolen, how it was stolen, where and why it was stolen. Common types of theft include:

  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Felony Theft
  • Receiving of stolen goods with knowledge that they were stolen
  • Shoplifting
  • White collar crimes that involve mortgage fraud, bribery, forgery, embezzlement, wire fraud, mail fraud, and many others

If it involves defrauding a person out of money or property, then it is classified as theft and the penalties can be serious. The exact penalties depend on the value of what was stolen and other circumstances surrounding that theft. For instance, shoplifting can be considered petty theft, but mortgage fraud is a felony.
