How Is Theft Defined In The State Of Indiana?
Theft is a broad term, and in general, Indiana state law defines theft as knowingly or intentionally taking control of someone else’s property with the plan to deprive that person of the use of that property. Theft and burglary charges can include:
- Grand theft
- Grand theft auto
- Carjacking or hijacking a motor vehicle
- Receiving stolen property
Theft charges can range in severity from a misdemeanor to a felony, based on the facts and circumstances of each case, and the amount of money or the value of the stolen property involved. Shoplifting and minor merchandise theft will likely be charged as a misdemeanor. Embezzlement crimes that involve thousands of dollars or burglary, robbery or hijacking crimes in which a weapon and the threat of deadly force was used will be charged as serious felonies. Convictions for theft felonies could result in substantial jail time.
Serious Defense Strategies For Serious Theft Charges
The more serious the theft charges, the more complicated the case can be to defend. For serious white collar crime theft charges, like embezzlement, investigators will likely have conducted a substantial investigation before bringing criminal charges and will require a criminal defense attorney with the experience, knowledge and resources to prepare a successful defense strategy. Likewise, if a weapon or firearm was involved, the violent crime charges will require a serious defense.
