What are Property Crimes?

Charges involving damage or a loss of property are known as property crimes. This is an umbrella term used to include theft, damage, and false pretenses where another person's property is stolen, damaged, or destroyed. You can also be charged with a property crime if you borrow something and fail to return it. Due to the wide variety of property crimes, a good legal defense is imperative.

Some property crimes include:

  • Larceny (theft)
  • Arson
  • Burglary
  • Forgery
  • Extortion
  • Theft
  • Vandalism
  • Embezzlement

How Property Crimes Affect You

Like crimes against individuals, property crimes are broken into felonies and misdemeanors. The type of property stolen or damaged, along with the value of that property, will weigh heavily on whether a crime is a felony or misdemeanor, and subsequently the type of consequences. The severity of the offense can also be the determining factor between being charged with a felony or a misdemeanor.

No matter which type of crime you are charged with, contacting a good criminal defense attorney is advisable. At the Jacob Law Firm, one of our top priorities is to always make ourselves available to our clients.
