What Is a Crime of Theft?
Under Connecticut law, crimes of theft occur when an individual wrongfully takes, obtains, or withholds the property of another person in order to deprive that person of their property or to give it to a third person. The types of theft crimes vary widely and can range from minor misdemeanor charges of shoplifting to felony charges of robbery. If you have been arrested and charged with a theft crime, you will be facing the potential for time in jail or prison, large fines, community service, and a permanent criminal record.
With this in mind, having a team of knowledgeable and helpful Connecticut theft lawyers representing you can mean the difference between being punished to the fullest extent of the law and having your charges either reduced or dropped.
