A Montgomery County Employee Theft Charges Attorney Offers Skilled Representation

Tennessee prosecutes crimes involving theft, fraud and misrepresentation as general theft crimes, including:

  • Identity theft, petty theft and grand theft
  • Larceny (using other people's credit cards, for example)
  • Criminal simulation
  • Theft of property and conversion (for example, stealing equipment from your employer)
  • Theft by deception or fraud
  • Insurance fraud
  • Forgery
  • Embezzlement

Punishment for theft crimes can be severe, including prison time and large fines. You could also be at risk of losing your professional license even when convicted of a misdemeanor theft crime. The degree of the crime and severity of the punishment is determined according to the value of the property stolen, whether violence was involved in commission of the crime and whether a weapon was used.
