Criminal Defense Lawyer in Pasadena
In general, theft can be defined as an individual who intentionally or fraudulently takes property from another individual without permission or consent. Types of theft crimes can be generally divided into two categories; felony theft crimes and misdemeanor theft crimes. Felony theft crimes involve "grand theft", the taking of another individual's property valued at $400 or more.
Felony theft crimes are punishable by jail or prison sentences, fines, restitution to the victim, probation or parole, and counseling. Misdemeanor theft crimes are less serious than felony theft crimes, but can still carry moderately severe consequences. Misdemeanor theft crimes involve the taking of property valued at $400 or less and can result in up to six months in jail community service, counseling and probation.
Types of theft crimes include:
- Shoplifting and petty theft
- Grand theft
- Armed Robbery
- Identity theft
