Theft Charges In New Haven

Theft Crimes Defense

In Connecticut, there are many criminal offenses that fall under the umbrella of “theft” or larceny including burglary and robbery. Burglary involves unlawfully breaking and entering into a building with the intent to commit larceny.  Robbery, on the other hand, involves the use or threat of force to steal the property of another. 

Both are very serious felony crimes that can lead to long prison sentences and heavy fines. When a deadly weapon is involved, the penalties significantly increase. For example, armed robbery comes with a mandatory minimum sentence of five years in prison — even for a first offense. Defense strategies that are often used to fight a burglary and or robbery charge include lack of criminal intent, mistaken identity, duress, or entrapment.
