        How These Cases Work

        It’s common to wonder and worry about what’s going to happen next if you have been charged with a theft crime, especially if you’ve never gone through this before. Having handled thousands of criminal cases in all the courts of Virginia, we understand how critical your job and/or your security clearance are to your livelihood and your family. Theft crimes are considered “Crimes of Moral Turpitude.” These are crimes that involve lying, cheating, or stealing. Because of this, if you are convicted of a theft crime, you are facing not only significant jail time and a substantial fine, but also a permanent criminal record with the FBI and Homeland Security. You could potentially lose your job, your security clearance, future employment opportunities, and your future. That’s something that’s terrifying for our clients and we’re sure you’re worried about this, too. Don’t lay down to the law. Fight back with the help of our Virginia theft lawyers.

        There are a number of theft related crimes that you may be charged with, including but not limited to:

        • Petit Larceny
        • Grand Larceny
        • Embezzlement
        • Credit Card Theft
        • Obtaining Money by False Pretenses
        • Credit Card Fraud (For Petit or Grand Larceny)

        In order for the Commonwealth of Virginia to prove the charge of embezzlement, they must prove:

        1. That you wrongfully and fraudulently took property; and
        2. That the property taken was by virtue of your employment.

        In order for the Commonwealth of Virginia to prove the charge of credit card theft, they must prove:

        That you either:

        1. Took, obtained, or withheld a credit card from the person, possession, custody, or control, of another; or
        2. That you received a credit card from another knowing that it had been taken, obtained, or withheld from the person, possession, custody, or control, of another; and
        3. That the taking, obtaining, or withholding was without the consent of the cardholder; and
        4. That the taking, obtaining, or withholding was with intent to use it, sell it, or to transfer it to a person other than the issuer or cardholder.

        In order for the Commonwealth of Virginia to prove the charge of obtaining money by false pretense, they must prove:

        1. That you made a false representation of a past event or existing fact; and
        2. That when the false representation was made, you had an intent to defraud another; and
        3. That because of the false representation, you obtained money, property, or a gift certificate from another.

        In order for the Commonwealth to prove the charge of credit card fraud, they must prove:

        That either:

        1. You took, obtained, or withheld, a credit card from the person, possession, custody, or control of another; or
        2. You received a credit card from another knowing that it had been taken, obtained, or withheld from the person, possession, custody, or control of another; or
        3. You received a credit card knowing the same to have been lost, mislaid, or delivered under a mistake as to the identity/address of the cardholder, and you retained possession; and
        4. That the taking, obtaining, withholding, retaining, or receiving of the credit card was with the intent to use it, sell it, or transfer it to a person other than the cardholder; and
        5. That you used the credit card for the purpose of obtaining money, goods, services or anything else of value; and
        6. That you used the credit card with the intent to defraud any person.

        If you are found guilty of any theft crime, the punishment can be very severe. Embezzlement and obtaining money by false pretenses are felonies, punishable by up to 20 years in jail, if the value of the property obtained is $500 or more. Credit card theft is a felony, punishable by up to 20 years in jail. Credit card fraud is a felony punishable by up to 5 years in jail, if the value of the property obtained is $500 or more.

        If the value of the property is less than $500, then charges of embezzlement, obtaining money by false pretenses, and credit card fraud are class 1 misdemeanors, punishable by up to 12 months in jail and a fine of up to $2,500, or both.

        In addition to the significant discovery, due diligence, and legal work we do to get your theft crime charges dismissed, your participation in appropriate programs and classes prior to court can significantly increase your odds of an even more successful outcome. These programs and classes can include:

        • Volunteer Community Service
        • Anti-Shoplifting Classes
        • Alternative to Jail Programs
        • Letters of Recommendation

        “I had a minor but bothersome issue on a litigation, and Nova Legal Group were extremely efficient, very effective and I am 100% pleased with the results they drove, and I am also quite impressed they managed to do my work and obtain the favorable resolution ahead of schedule during the year of COVID. And I think their fee structure is easy to work with and very reasonable.”
