What Do These Charges Mean?

When facing any type of criminal charges, it is beneficial to familiarize yourself with the nature of your case and the specific allegations against you. Theft is a type of property crime, and it happens when someone takes another person’s property without permission. There are different types of theft charges, and the severity of the charges against you depend on the value of the stolen property and other factors.

Fraud is a type of white collar crime, and it involves the deception of another person for the purpose of financial gain. There are different types of fraud, and they can include the following:

  • Credit card or debit card fraud

Both fraud and theft charges involve unlawfully taking another person’s property, assets or money. If you are facing either of these charges, you would be wise to fight back and seek a positive outcome to your case.
