Being charged with any crime can be a stressful experience, especially so if the crime is theft related. North Carolina has some of the toughest laws on theft and the punishments are equally as tough. Seeking legal counsel before a theft trial is critical to ensure your rights are fairly represented with such high risks at stake, and posting bail is a key step in securing the freedom to explore the proper legal counsel. Here we walk through posting bail for theft charges in Raleigh.
Property crimes such as theft and larceny are the most common crimes in North Carolina, but oddly enough, these terms are not strictly defined in North Carolina law. Theft is generally referred to as the entry of a structure to take someone else’s property, and larceny is referred to as carrying, taking, riding, or leading away someone else’s property. Theft from motor vehicles and shoplifting are among the most common types of property crimes.
Unless otherwise stated, nearly all property crimes in North Carolina are charged as felonies. A handful of larceny offenses are considered misdemeanors but still require the fuss of the legal process.
