About Theft Crime Charges: A person commits theft if he or she knowingly obtains or uses, or endeavors to obtain or to use, the property of another with intent to, either temporarily or permanently deprive the other person of a right to the property or a benefit from the property, and/or to appropriate the property to his or her own use or to the use of any person not entitled to the use of the property. Theft generally falls into to categories:
Burden of Proof in Theft Crime Defense Cases: First and foremost, it must be established that an act of theft actually occurred. In theft cases the prosecution must prove various aspects of their case against the accused. Some of these aspects may include:
Essentially, the prosecution must show the accused was either physically involved in the theft, helped plan the theft, or had knowledge of the theft before or after the fact while in possession of the property or before the property was resold or given to another.
Defense of Theft Crime Charges: In some cases, the fact that an act of theft even occurred. For example, it is not out of the realm for a business owner or individual that owns the property to allege property was stolen in an insurance scheme. Sometimes the person that took the property, had possession of the property or sold the property had rights to the property.
If the accused did not have rights to the property in question, then other aspects of the crime must be put into question, such as if the accused was involved in the act of taking the property, if the accused was involved in the planning of the taking of the property, or had any prior or after the fact knowledge that the property was illegally obtained.
As with any criminal case, the actions of law enforcement must be examined to determine if any civil rights violations occurred, or if the investigation was compromised in any way.
