What are Indian’s Theft Laws?
Under Indiana Law (Indiana Code 35-43-4-2 ), theft is defined as the intent of exerting unauthorized control over someone else’s property in order to deprive him/her of value or use. Theft crimes can be charged as either a misdemeanor or felony, depending on the value of the stolen money or item.
If the property is valued at less than $750, then the theft is considered a Class A misdemeanor. If the property is worth between $750 and less than $50,000, then the offense is a Level 6 felony. Furthermore, if the value of the property is $50,000 or more, then it is a Level 5 felony.
Nevertheless, whether you are facing a misdemeanor, or a felony charge, any conviction can have a major impact on your life for years to come. Taken as a whole, convictions involving property crimes can adversely affect future employment opportunities, professions and can stigmatize you as an untrustworthy person. It is therefore critical that you understand your options and that the legal representation you choose can make a tremendous difference in the outcome of your case. Thus, contacting a sincere experienced Indianapolis property crime attorney at your earliest opportunity is paramount.
