Property crimes involve the theft and use of property, identification or financial information of another, taking a motor vehicle without permission, and other crimes involving the unlawful taking and use of stolen property. If you are charged with a property crime, you may be looking at significant time in custody, court ordered restitution, and a mark on your record that can bar you from many areas of employment. If you are charged with a property crime, it’s important that you hire a skilled property crimes defense attorney as soon as possible. Other property crimes include theft of a firearm, trafficking in stolen property, shoplifting, organized retail theft or possession of a stolen vehicle, among others.
