Fighting Theft Crime Charges

Theft crimes are defined as taking property that is not rightly yours to take with the intention of depriving the owner of its possession. The law makes a distinction between the levels of severity of theft. Petty theft is a less serious charge and considered a misdemeanor, which can lead to penalties and fines, probation, and even jail. Grand theft is considered a more serious crime as it means the property stolen is of much greater value. Grand theft can lead to felony charges.
