Burglary, Larceny, Motor Vehicle Theft, Shoplifting, Criminal Mischief, Arson

In the world of criminal behavior, there are different types of crimes. The main categories of crime include offenses against people (e.g. violent crimes), inchoate crimes (“attempts”), statutory crimes (e.g. alcohol-related crimes, drug crimes, traffic offenses, and white collar crimes), financially-motivated crimes, and crimes against property.

As the name suggests, “property crime” generally involves damaging or destroying someone else’s property. Although damaging someone else’s property may cause the property owner to experience strong, negative emotions and significant mental harm as a result of losing enjoyment or use of their property, or losing the money they spent on it, property crime does not typically involve an act of violence toward the owner of the property.

As such, most property crimes are also categorized as theft crimes, including:

  • Burglary
  • Larceny
  • Motor Vehicle theft
  • Shoplifting
  • Arson
  • Criminal Mischief

“The object of the theft-type offenses is the taking of money or property, but there is no force or threat of force against the victims. The property crime category includes arson because the offense involves the destruction of property; however, arson victims may be subjected to force,” according to the Federal Bureau of Investigation’s (FBI) page on property crime.

    "You really took years of stress off my shoulder and I can finally have clarity in my mind."
    Over the past month or so I had made a call to the Law offices of Jason Porter because I needed to resolve an issue that occurred over 7 years ago. Once I explained the situation the secretary sent me directly to Jonathan Thacher. All I can say is that Thacher did an amazing job handling my case and I am extremely happy right now. I no longer have to worry about that problem ever again thanks to Thacher. The work was effective and everything went through perfectly. Thank you so much man you really took years of stress off my shoulder and I can finally have clarity in my mind.

    "Although I hope to never need their services again, if I do, I will definitely be giving them a call."
    First and foremost, everyone from staff to the attorneys are all great!! I first started with the firm in 2015 and due to my own circumstances, I was unable to complete the needed court requirements in order to finalize my case. The amount I paid to retain an attorney was placed in a trust and they assured me it would be there until I completed my requirements. 4 years later they kept their word and finalized my case once I completed my needed court requirement. Everything was professional and in a timely fashion on their behalf. They also found a second issue that needed to be resolved and also completed that for me. Although I hope to never need their services again, if I do, I will definitely be giving them a call. Thank you, everyone!

    "Forever Grateful"
    I have to go into detail here because there’s no way That I cannot give high praise for what Nicole Carlucci did for my daughter and I. I’ve learned the hardest way possible that men tend to be at a great disadvantage when dealing with a divorce and with custody problems. My ex-wife kidnapped our child and had every intention of destroying our bond and the great relationship we have. It’s the saddest thing in the world how some people take their own struggles and personal feelings out by using their children as pawns and manipulating to hurt others. Which is why I could not be happier and more grateful for the day I walked into Porter & Porter Law Firm. From day one, my story was heard, understood, and through a year and a half of what felt like full on war just so I could maintain my relationship with me daughter without us being ripped from each other’s lives, Nicole Carlucci supported me and used her expertise to get as close to the absolute best result possible. She never gave up or gave in and that helped me to stay strong, too, when there would be days or weeks my daughter and I would not see each other. If not for Nicole, I can only imagine how much more awful such a nightmare of a situation could have gotten. However, I am now divorced, continue to have an amazing relationship with my daughter, and have court orders to hold my ex responsible and accountable so that way certain things will hopefully never happen again, and if they do, I know who I am calling!! Nicole’s passion to help someone being taking advantage of and her drive to ensure justice be served when someone is manipulating the system is exactly what my daughter and I needed so we can live a happy life. Thank you Nicole and Firm!!
