Theft is generally defined as the unlawful taking another’s property with the intent of permanently depriving that person of use or enjoyment of the property. Theft can be accomplished many ways, such as through misrepresentation (fraud) or by a forceful taking. Depending on the circumstances and nature of the property/taking, a defendant in Tulsa may face stiff penalties for theft related crimes, including jail time. But if you hire a skilled attorney without delay, you may be able to avoid jail time through careful negotiation of a plea or by challenging the charges in court.
Oklahoma classifies most theft crimes as “crimes against habitation and property”. The penalties can be severe, and there is no substitute for competent legal advice when dealing with any property crime.
