"Theft crimes" encompass a rather broad variety of criminal offenses, all relating to taking another's property or money. A theft crime may be violent in nature or may be conducted without the victim knowing or by means of deception. In fact, many white collar crimes are also theft crimes, most often involving fraud. Certain theft crimes may be charged as Federal offenses, meaning the defendant will face trial in Federal Court.
