Understanding Theft Laws in Mississippi

Theft is a broad term that encompasses a number of different crimes. 

Theft charges can be brought against someone who:

  • Takes someone else's property without their consent.
  • Takes property that belongs to them but does so without the owner's consent.
  • Steals property that is valued at over $500.
  • Steals property from a store, business, or other type of establishment.

Each of these situations is considered theft, even though the charges are different based on the circumstances of the crime. The penalties for theft crimes can be severe, and the evidence necessary for a conviction is often circumstantial. If you have been charged with theft, it is important that you speak with an attorney as soon as possible.
