Understanding Theft, Fraud and Forgery

Theft, fraud and forgery are similar crimes in that they all involve taking something that rightfully belongs to someone else. Usually the difference between these crimes involves the instrument by which the crime is committed:

  • Theft: Theft is the simplest of these crimes to understand, as it usually involves simply taking some physical property that belongs to someone else. The charges can range from simple shoplifting to felony theft or more serious theft charges like robbery that involve guns or other means of force.
  • Fraud: In the context of theft crimes, fraud usually involves some material misrepresentation as a way to get money or other property from someone else. This includes identity theft or criminal impersonation.
  • Forgery: Forgery is a type of theft very similar to fraud, only it involves a legally significant written document of some kind, like signing a check with someone else’s name.
  • Burglary: This is the crime of breaking into a structure like a home or a storefront with the intention of committing a crime. Usually the intended crime is robbery, though this is not always the case.

Leah Bishop has the experience and skill to defend you from a conviction of any of these charges.
