How are theft charges different than other charges?
Theft charges can be divided up into three main categories:
- Retail Theft (theft from a store, by a non-employee, during regular business hours)
- Theft or Fraud that is not Robbery or Retail Theft
- Robbery (theft by force)
The best criminal defense lawyers will tell you that theft charges are, in one particular way, more serious than any other charges. Theft charges are considered crimen falsi. A conviction of a crimen falsi offense can haunt a person for a lifetime, often more than a violent crime may. While most other crimes can only be used against a person in future court proceedings under very specific circumstances, crimen falsi convictions can be used against a person in nearly all future court proceedings to relay to a judge or jury that the person is dishonest and not to be believed.
