Types of Theft Crimes in Pennsylvania
Any time property is taken without permission, it can be charged as theft. As you might expect, this can make for some interesting accusations. For example, a person might accuse someone of having taken their property unlawfully even though they gave it away to begin with.
Some ways to fight a theft charge could be:
- Returning the property: In many situations, simply giving the property back intact is enough to avoid criminal charges.
- Proving the property belongs to you: If there is proof of an ownership transfer, our team can help you present that and avoid any criminal sentencing. We can also help you uncover evidence that will demonstrate that change.
- Intoxication: People have been known to do stupid things when drunk or otherwise inebriated. We may be able to have the charges against you reduced or dropped by demonstrating that your intoxicated self made a mistake, and you will not do that again.
