Understanding Different Types of Theft Crimes

As items have different classifications of value and ownership, theft charges are divided into multiple categories.

These are some of the most common charges for theft cases:

  • Theft / larceny: Taking someone's property without intending to return it
  • Embezzlement: Fraudulently taking property that has been entrusted to you
  • Robbery: Taking property from someone through the use or threat of force

Defending You Against Burglary Charges

Burglary is one of the most common theft-related charges in California. Legally, burglary means entering a building or vehicle with the intention of committing any type of theft or any felony crime. As a practical matter, the charge of burglary usually relates back to theft.

If you have been charged with burglary, depending on the circumstances of your case, you could be facing from one to six years in jail. With such serious consequences, you need an Oakland theft defense attorney to mount an aggressive defense.
