Hayward White Collar Crime Lawyer

From stars to socialites to business professionals to the everyday people you pass on the street—no one is exempt from accusations of theft including those living in Hayward, Fremont, Oakland, Piedmont, Union City, Orinda, Pittsburg, Richmond, and the surrounding cities.

Unlike those actually caught in the act of theft, some individuals may be falsely accused of theft or larceny.

California white collar crime laws of theft and larceny

Theft is the act of stealing. Larceny is a type of theft.

In California, both theft and larceny are considered white collar crimes and punishable under the same law. The California Penal Code 484 defines larceny as the taking or defrauding another person of money, labor or real or personal property, or causes or procures others to report falsely his or her wealth or mercantile character fraudulently obtaining money by a variety of means including trickery, fraud, force, or theft with the intent of permanently depriving the owner of the property. However, with an act of larceny a perpetrator does not illegally enter a structure by using force, non-force, or attempted forced entry.

Thefts may be categorized as petty larceny or grand larceny and are based on the amount or value of what was stolen. Types of larceny include theft of motor vehicles and its parts, identity theft, embezzlement, forgery, robbery, and fraud. No matter what the charge you need a strong defense from a white collar crime lawyer in Hayward.
