Theft is a broadly defined crime. There are a number of theft-related criminal charges in Virginia. Two main factors will dictate what exact charge someone would face:
- Value — The value of the property that was taken can determine if a crime will be charged as a felony or a misdemeanor.
- Method — How was the taking of property accomplished? Was the property taken by force off the person of another? Was the property taken by deception?
Successful defense against theft charges calls for experience and a deep understanding of how the prosecution is likely to approach your case.
