Theft Crimes Lawyer in Prescott

The penalty for a theft crime is dependent upon the value of the property taken and the method used. For example shoplifting a bag of potato chips has a very minor penalty compared to a robbery of a bank for a large amount of money while threatening bank personnel with a gun. The use of weapons, or threats of harm will increase the severity of the penalties. Identity theft is a particular form of theft crime which has become far more common over the last few decades. It became such a problem that Congress passed the Identity Theft and Assumption Deterrence Act of 1998 which defines and prohibits identity theft and establishes the misuse of personal information of another as a felony.
