Defense Solutions for Theft Crimes
In Virginia, all theft-related crimes are referred to as larceny. The courts define larceny as the unlawful or fraudulent taking of property that belongs to another without their permission and with the intent of permanently depriving the owner of their property.
There are several types of larceny that vary in severity. Petty theft, for instance, is less serious and charged as a misdemeanor. The consequences of a misdemeanor can involve fines, jail time, and probation. Harsher penalties will be faced by those who have committed a more serious crime, like grand larceny, or other offenses that can be charged as a felony.
