Larceny Offenses in New York
Westchester Theft Crime Attorney
Larceny crimes range from relatively minor to extremely serious criminal offenses, and are related to misappropriating or stealing another's property or money. Depending on the case, a larceny crime may also be classified as a violent crime or may be considered an economic or
white collar crime. The manner in which the offense is carried out as well as the value of the property involved will affect the severity and type of criminal charges that one may face. These crimes range from petit larceny (petty larceny) to grand larceny in the first degree, along with many types of fraud and theft of services.
