According to the law, theft or stealing is the illegal taking of another person’s property without the person’s consent. This term is used for all major crimes against property, larceny, robbery, trespassing, looting, intrusion, fraud, shoplifting, embezzlement and even criminal conversion. In some areas, theft is also considered to be synonymous to larceny while in other jurisdictions, theft has replaced larceny. The person who carries out an act of theft is called a thief.
If you or anyone you know has been accused of theft, the key to success against the case lies in early intervention. This is why you have to be represented at both the pre and post-indictment stages. It is not at all advised to discuss your case with anyone, not even the police or child protective services. This is because these people and agencies don’t want to help you, but just want to convict and imprison you.
Any conviction you face for theft can lead to far reaching penalties. Usually, the police and prosecutors have strong evidence against the accused to support the charges while the accused have limited defense options. This is why the accused needs the help of a reputable and experienced attorney to help him out of the situation.
