Newport News Theft Crime Attorney

Defending Against Theft Crimes in Hampton Roads

If you have been charged with taking another person's property without his or her permission, it is considered theft. The severity of the theft penalty will depend on the specific crime and the circumstances surrounding the incident. One of the main factors that influence the penalty is the value of the stolen property and whether violence was included in the commission of the crime.

Types of Theft Charges in Virginia

Theft is a serious crime that is broken down into separate theft-related offenses. A wide variety of crimes fall under this category, but they are all related to the taking of another's property. Common theft crimes include:

Burglary Offenses and Penalties
Burglary is the crime of breaking and entering. If an individual enters the dwelling of another with intent to commit larceny or a felony, that person is guilty of burglary. Burglary is classified as a Class 3 felony.

Robbery: Theft with Violence
Robbery can either be classified as a theft crime or a violent crime, depending on the specific circumstances. It is the taking of another individual's property through either the threat of force or actual force. Penalties for robbery range from five years to life in prison.

Carjacking Laws in Virginia
In Virginia, carjacking is a serious offense that can result in serious penalties. Carjacking takes place when the perpetrator takes another's car with the intent of temporarily or permanently possessing that person's vehicle.
