Types of Theft Crimes
A few of the most common forms of theft include the following:
- Identity theft
- Grand theft auto
- Petty theft
- Grand theft
In order to convict you of a theft crime, the prosecution has to collect evidence to prove that the property was actually taken, that it was taken intentionally, and that you had the intent to take it. If there is evidence that a firearm or weapon was used during the crime, there are additional penalties which you may be facing. When it comes to matters of sentencing, the penalties for a misdemeanor or felony depend on the way it was taken and the value of the property.
