Theft Court Cases in Rhode Island
Theft crimes consist of actions involving the taking of another's property
without their consent. Examples of theft crimes are burglary, robbery,
embezzlement, larceny, looting, shoplifting, grand theft, carjacking,
home invasion, and fraud. These crimes may be charged as misdemeanors
or felonies, depending on the circumstances. If the theft involved the
use of force, as with a firearm, gun, or other deadly weapon, the charges
and resulting penalties will be more severe. A theft crime that may be
considered minor, such as a first-offense shoplifting, can result in up
to a year in jail and fines of $50 to $500 along with informal probation
of one to three years if you are convicted.
