Theft Crimes in Las Vegas
Theft is an area of law that can be complicated to understand and one where you will hear many misleading things from people around you. Theft is the taking of another’s property without their permission and with the intent to permanently deprive them. Theft regardless of whether you were successful will be prosecuted. If there was intent, that is theft. Do not let anyone tell you that an unsuccessful attempt will not end with a prosecution. Conversely, an accidental taking of property could end with that result, as well. Today’s legal environment is probably tougher on crime than it has ever been, and with all of the new tools at law enforcement’s disposal the deck is stacked against defendants.
Types of theft crimes typically prosecuted in Las Vegas include:
Possession of Stolen Property
Most of the crimes being prosecuted will involve petit and grand larceny, given the fact that automobiles today are near to theft proof (although it still happens). If, however, the alleged victim was injured, weapons were found, or cited in the event far more serious charges and implications are attached to your case.
Serious Crimes, Serious Defense
If you have been charged with theft, it is important to bring in a defense lawyer right away. The sooner we get started on your case, the more time we have to develop a defense or make a deal. Your ultimate charges will depend on the value and circumstance of your case and the amount of menace involved. It is important to act and work quickly to ensure the best results in your criminal defense.
