Theft by Taking Receiving Atlanta

Theft offenses are one of the most common crimes prosecuted in this country. In Georgia, theft crimes can be either classified as a Theft by Taking or a Theft by Receiving. A person commits the offense of Theft by Taking if they take the property of another with the intent to deprive them of that property. A Theft by Receiving occurs when a person receives property belonging to another which they knew or should have known has been stolen. If the property at issue is worth $500 or more (or involves an automobile), then crime will be charged as a felony (link to Felony Atlanta). Both Theft by Taking and Theft by Receiving carry a potential sentence of up to 10 years in prison.

Theft charges can arise in a variety of situations such as theft by taking, theft by receiving, theft by conversion, theft by deception, theft of services, theft by extortion, theft of lost/mislaid property, and entering auto. If you have been charged with any of these crimes, you need an experienced and aggressive criminal defense attorney.
