Theft is when a person knowingly obtains or uses property that belongs to someone else with the intent to temporarily or permanently deprive the owner of the right to it. The value of the stolen property dictates how serious the charges can become. You may not even know that you are in possession of stolen property until its too late.
There are several issues relating to theft crimes. They include identifying the person who stole, valuing the property stolen, witness statements, and possible video and audio evidence. A theft conviction will stay on your criminal record and will be visible to employers, creditors, lenders, educational facilities, and housing authorities.
