Fraud Embezzlement Larceny

The blanket term "theft crimes" encompasses many serious offenses, including white-collar crimes like embezzlement, identity theft and fraud as well as larceny, larceny by false pretenses or by trick, construction fraud, bank fraud, forgery, and uttering a forged document. Sometimes motivated by necessity and sometimes by greed, convictions on these charges result in serious consequences, including steep fines and lengthy prison sentences. They can also do irreparable harm to your reputation, possibly costing you your job. To fight against such serious penalties, you need serious representation. You need the Law Office of Charles C.

Criminal Defense Attorney Who Understands Your Rights

Larceny (sometimes used interchangeably with "theft") is basically stealing someone else's property. Based upon the value of the stolen property, petty theft charges could be filed (a misdemeanor), or grand theft charges could result (a felony). White-collar crimes like embezzlement and bank fraud are commonly charged as felonies because they usually involve large sums of money.
