Chico Theft Crimes Lawyer

Understanding California Theft Laws

Theft crimes involve taking possession of someone else’s property without their knowledge or permission. These crimes may be charged as misdemeanors or felonies depending on the value of the items stolen and the defendant’s prior criminal history.

What are the Different Types of Theft Charges?

Theft crimes include:

  • Shoplifting or petty theft
  • Grand theft
  • Grand theft auto
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Armed robbery
  • Embezzlement
  • Dealing in stolen property
  • Carjacking
  • Mail theft

What are the Penalties for Theft Crimes?

Theft crimes are thought to be crimes of “moral turpitude,” which does not bode well for future employment or professional licenses should you be convicted. Future employers – as well as state licensing boards for contractors, real estate, and nursing – may deny you a professional license with a theft crime on your record.

Other potential penalties for a theft crime include jail or prison time, fines, restitution to victims, probation, community service, and theft counseling.
