Theft & Property Crimes Archives

Violent crime charges must be handled carefully

Violent crimes and crimes that involve personal property are some of the criminal charges that can end with a person who is convicted facing very harsh penalties. If you made a mistake by letting your anger get the best of you, causing you to act in a violent manner, you need to learn about the options that you have for dealing with the criminal case.

Robbery versus armed robbery: One big difference

In our previous blog post, we discussed the case of the preacher who is facing criminal charges in connection with his actions involving escorts. If you recall, he is facing criminal charges for armed robbery and a host of other charges. Let's discuss some of the aspects that are necessary for an armed robbery charge verses a robbery charge.

Auditors accuse 2 nonprofits of misusing federal grants

A recent report from an Energy Department watchdog group is accusing two Maryland nonprofit groups of overcharging the government in a fraudulent manner.

Theft charges require aggressive representation

People in this world want to protect the property they worked hard to accumulate. For that reason, people usually decide to contact the police when their property is missing. In some cases, the person who took the property is properly identified. In other cases, the person who is detained might not be the person who took the items. No matter which category you fall into, it is vital that you understand your rights throughout the process.

Know your rights about being detained without charges

When you are arrested, you likely want to know what you are being charged with. You probably want to move through the process as fast as possible so that you can move on with your life. But, what happens if you are arrested and held without charges? The answer to that might interest some of our readers.

Criminal defense strategies can impact a case

Last week, we discussed two teenagers who were being charged with crimes related to an alleged shoplifting spree they went on along the Atlantic Avenue boardwalk.
