Theft is more than borrowing items without permission

Larceny and theft are sometimes considered to be the same under law, but some states still keep them separated. Larceny itself is the unlawful taking of someone else's property when he or she hasn't given you permission and with the intention to keep the property from the owner permanently. Theft is more broadly the taking of another person's property without his or her permission and with the intent to prevent the person from regaining his or her property permanently.

What can you do to persuade a jury?

It's in your best interests to be likable when you show up to court. The jury needs to be persuaded to believe what you and your attorney want it to believe. To do that, it's vital that you take the time to think about how the jury will come to a decision.

This is how a judge determines your sentence

If you are convicted of a crime, the next thing that happens is criminal sentencing. Your sentence is based on many factors including whether or not there is a minimum sentencing requirement. Criminal offenses may be penalized with things like community service or may result in life in prison without parole, depending on the case.

Vandalism can result in jail time and heavy fines

You thought it was funny to throw eggs at your teacher's car last night, and you weren't aware that they could cause actual damage to the paint. What you didn't know what that the teacher was prepared for acts like this and had a security camera installed on the property. Now, you not only have trouble at school, but you're also facing an arrest. You're already 18, so you're in deep trouble if the teacher decides he wants to press charges for the crime.
