Theft and Robbery Crimes in Maryland

"Theft" is used to cover a multitude of charges in the state of Maryland. Unlike in other states, it is applied to a number of different offenses that would otherwise be charged separately.

Examples of theft charges in Maryland include:

  • Shoplifting
  • Larceny
  • Receiving stolen property
  • Embezzlement

Penalties vary based on the value of what was stolen. However, all consequences involve a fine and some prison time. Not to mention, the stolen property must be returned to the victim or victims. Also, if you have a theft charge on your record, it could affect future employment opportunities. All things considered, it is wise to seek legal help right away so you have the strongest chance in court.

Robbery Charges

Robbery is a more serious form of theft. It is a felony and differs from other related theft crimes in that it implies the use of force or threats that bring the victim or victims fear. If you are facing robbery charges, you could be facing serious penalties such as up to 30 years in prison.

In court, the state will attempt to prove that you trespassed, took and carried away property from the victim or victims with the intent of theft by using force, or threatening to use force. If any of these major points can be disproved, I can fight for a lesser charge.
