Honolulu Theft Crimes Lawyer

Criminal Defense You Can Count On

From a very young age, individuals are taught not to commit theft, which is the wrongful taking of the property of another individual. The intent is to permanently deprive the person of that property. Theft, or larceny, is a criminal offense that is against the law in Hawaii under §708-830. Theft is committed when the individual has exerted unauthorized control over another's property. A violation of a theft law can take place with all types of property, including:

  • Real property
  • Tangible property
  • Documents
  • Information
  • Personal services
  • Intellectual property

If you or a loved one has been arrested for any type of theft crime, it is essential to immediately speak with a Honolulu criminal defense attorney from my firm. Depending on what is taken, the value of that property, and the nature of the offense, a theft crime can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony. Whatever the circumstance, it is a serious charge that carries devastating long-term consequences.
