Nevada theft crimes include but are not limited to:
- Petit larceny
- Grand Larceny
- Grand Larceny Auto
- Identity theft
- Possession of Stolen Property
- Possession of Stolen Vehicle
- Possession of Credit Card Without Cardholders Consent
How you are charged in any of the above will depend on the nature of the crime, the value of what was stolen, and any aggravating factors involved such as the use of force or weapons. In less serious offenses, such as proven shoplifting from a retail store, you may be able to walk away without a conviction if you pay restitution and complete an educational program about theft crimes. In more serious crimes, such as where a large amount of money or property is alleged to be stolen, you may be facing the prospect of decades in Nevada State Prison.Why You Need a Las Vegas Theft Crimes Lawyer
