Types of Theft Crimes

Theft is the crime of stealing something from another either forcibly or without their consent. There are two general categories of theft crimes, petty theft and grand theft. Petty theft is a relatively minor crime involving a smaller value of theft, but still presents a legal challenge to avoid a conviction. Grand theft involves much more serious charges and can include bodily harm. Below are just some of the types of theft crimes our office can skillfully represent you for:

  • Insider trading
  • Shoplifting
  • Burglary
  • Bad checks
  • Juvenile theft crimes
  • Petty theft
  • Embezzlement
  • Grand theft
  • Grand theft auto
  • Robbery
  • Armed Robbery
  • Carjacking

The consequences of a theft conviction can result in fines, probation, restitution and even jail or prison time. When facing these types of charges it is important to fight to minimize the charges or even obtain a dismissal, as a conviction could consequently affect your future in many ways. Attorney Scott D. Hughes is confident he can assist you with a strong defense regardless of what type of theft charges you are facing. Our viewpoint is to aggressively pursue a reduction of your charges if not an outright dismissal.
