Theft and Fraud Crimes
Theft by Larceny requires the taking and carrying away the property of another with the intent to permanently deprive the owner of the property. Petty Theft of property valued less than $400.00 is a misdemeanor, although a second offense may be filed as a felony. Theft of property valued over $400.00 is Grand Theft and may be filed as a misdemeanor or a felony for the first offense.
Burglary is the crime of entering a building with the intent to commit theft or a felony. The prosecution must prove that the accused had the intent to steal something or commit a felony at the moment of entry into the building. The old terminology of “breaking and entering” is satisfied merely with entry of the building—force is not necessary. In California First Degree Residential Burglary is always a felony and a “Strike.” All other types of Burglary, including Shoplifting, are second degree. They may be charged either as a misdemeanor or a felony and do not count as “strikes.”
Robbery involves the taking of property from another by force or fear. It is a felony and a strike. Infliction of Great Bodily Injury and/or the use of a gun or other weapon increases the sentence in state prison.
Embezzlement, Fraud, Bad Checks/Insufficient Funds and other White-Collar Crime generally involves nonviolent theft committed for financial gain. Many white-collar crimes involve professional people with no history of criminal activity.
A Theft Conviction Can Have Serious and Lasting Consequences
A conviction for any theft offense, even a minor one such as Shoplifting or Insufficient Funds, may have serious adverse consequences beyond fines and jail or prison. It may have affect your future employability or permanently affect your professional licensing and your career.
Any type of theft is a crime of dishonesty and "moral turpitude." Conviction of even a minor theft offense may permanently affect your ability to get the job of your choice and may limit your career. It may result in discharge from your current employment, especially if your job involves money, such as banking, investments, securities, stocks, or bonds. It could adversely affect medical, legal, real estate, and other professional licenses.
