TheftTheft fraud robbery

Under English Common Law ( the system the United States legal system is based on) there were originally two forms of Theft. Larceny the unlawful taking of the property of another with the intent to permanently deprive them of their property; Robbery the taking of property from the person of another by force or fear. Today we have an countless amount of theft related charges to theft by fraud, theft by employer, theft by false pretense etc.
Misdemeanor Theft: generally a theft will be a misdemeanor if it is less than $900. However, there are many exceptions depending on how the money was obtained. For example if the money was taken from the person of another it could be charged as a felony.

Car Theft



Felony theft: the most common felony theft is Robbery. Robbery is a theft crime that incorporates violence by threat or act. Robbery is one of the only felony theft charges that cannot be reduced to a misdemeanor.

Embezzlement: is the taking of property that you are I trusted with for some purposes. This is generally seen when an accounted, or employee converts corporate or company funds to personal use. The person did not need to use force, fraud or a trick to gain access to the funds he was entrusted by the company or true owner of the property.

Theft by Fraud or Trick: theft by fraud or trick are similar because they both involve the victim being misled. Theft by fraud is when the perpetrator convinces to turn over property based on a misrepresentation, fraud or lie. For example: if the person charged told the alleged victim that he was going to take his money and invest it in a fund that did not exist. That would be theft by fraud. Now if you thought you were signing a gym membership and you where actually signing over money that would be theft by trick.

Burglary: Burglary is the illegal entry into a building ( boat or locked vehicle) to commit a felony or theft therein. Most people here burglary and they think house, because at common law you could only burglarize a house. However, today the crime of burglary can apply to any building and other types of property.
However, burglary of a house is treated differently. First it is considered a serious felony (a strike) and if there is someone in the house during the robbery a violent felony.
