Under California law, theft is the intentional and unlawful taking of property. Theft does not occur unless the defendant intended to permanently deprive the owner of his or her property. Theft also encompasses a wide variety of crimes including embezzlement, receiving stolen property, robbery, and forgery.

Being accused of a theft crime can be damaging to your reputation, especially if the charge is unwarranted. Having defense counsel that will listen to your version of events is imperative. The law office of Larry M. Bakman has resources that will help put together a case to prove your side of the story and find holes in the prosecution’s case against you.


In California, burglary occurs when a person enters a vehicle or a building in order to commit a crime inside that building or vehicle. A burglary conviction brings with it anywhere from 7 years to six months in prison or jail, depending on the specific charge. Fines of up to $1,000 can also be imposed.

Those charged with burglary should consult with an experienced criminal defense attorney that can help him or her navigate the state’s criminal justice system. The law office of Larry M. Bakman can use his experience as a criminal prosecutor to look for holes in the current prosecution’s argument.
