Criminal acts that involve the unlawful taking of property that belongs to another individual without the individual's consent and with the intent to permanently deprive the individual of such property are labeled Theft Crimes. There are two classifications of theft crimes in California – grand theft and petty theft. Petty theft is taking property valued less than $400 and grand theft is taking property valued greater than $400. Grand theft crimes are often felonies and can carry a jail sentence of over a year if convicted. The penalties of any theft charge, especially a felony theft charge, can be severe. Some of the most commonly committed theft crimes include: shoplifting, larceny, joyriding, grand theft, grand theft auto, embezzlement, credit card fraud, check fraud, perjury, burglary, identity theft, and forgery.
Fraud charges involve allegations of defrauding, lying to, or misleading a private person, corporation, or a government agency such as the State of California or the United States Treasury. Our fraud defense lawyers have successfully represented clients for Fraud charges in state and federal court for a wide-range of offenses including alleged filing fraudulent claims for insurance relating to Medi-Cal, Medi-Care, Auto Insurance, Welfare, Unemployment, and Worker's Compensation.
