Knowledgeable New York counselor handles a range of theft cases

There are many types of theft crimes, but they all involve taking someone's property. Theft charges vary based on the property's value, where it was taken, how it was acquired, and whether violence was involved. Depending on the value of the property, it may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. Shoplifting and pickpocketing are examples of larceny. A burglary charge involves unlawfully entering a home or building with intent to steal property or commit another crime. Embezzlement is charged against those who steal money that they have been entrusted with. Robbery involves taking property by force. These charges carry different penalties depending on the situation. That's why it's important to seek skilled representation from an experienced defense attorney who knows the laws and has defended clients on similar charges.
