Many Forms of Theft Crimes in Minnesota
Minnesota law classifies a number of acts as theft, including:
- An illegal connection to cable television or WiFi
- Identity theft
- Taking, transferring, using or hiding somebody else’s property
- Applying for or receiving public assistance when you’re not entitled to it
- Making false representations to a bank or credit card company
- Receiving stolen property
- Stealing a car
- Swindling someone out of money or their property
- Check forgery and “kiting” checks
- Insurance fraud
- Bank fraud including using credit or debit cards
- Corporate theft
- White collar crimes
Whether you are charged with misdemeanor or felony theft depends on the specifics of the case and the value of what you are charged with stealing. In both cases, the charge is serious and you must be represented by a serious, experienced theft defense attorney.
