Theft offenses are crimes committed when someone takes or carries away another person’s property without permission. It involves acting with the intention of permanently depriving the owner of the property. These offenses can range from simple shoplifting to a felony murder rule if someone dies as result of robbery or armed robbery. They also can be considered crimes of moral turpitude that can be used against you again and again.
Being charged with theft doesn’t automatically make you guilty. Theft convictions require proof that the property did not belong to you, that it was stolen, and that you intended, beyond a reasonable doubt, to steal.
