Theft & Larceny Defense Attorneys in Los Angeles and Southern California
Unlike robbery, theft occurs when one takes and controls possession of another’s property by fraud or deceit.
It is important to note that theft has replaced larceny in many civil codes. A critical component in any theft charge is the establishment of intent.
For instance, if someone mistakes their jacket for another’s, that person has not committed a crime since they believe that the coat is rightfully theirs. The charge of theft can be made if, once at home, the person realizes their mistake and continues to possess the coat without returning it.
This distinction (among others) provides an opportunity to successfully defend against charges of theft. The ability to prove the intention of theft is a difficult task, and one that Hakimfar Law has successfully defended against in the past.
