In the State of Ohio, theft crimes involve the unauthorized taking of property with the intent to permanently deprive its owner of possession. Charges for theft crimes can range anywhere from a minor first-degree misdemeanor to a major first-degree felony, which carries the possibility of costly fines and extensive prison sentences.
Theft is considered a crime of moral turpitude, meaning that they are dishonest in nature and show that the individual who perpetrated it displays a lack of good morals. Because of this, having a conviction for theft on your permanent record can significantly damage your ability to obtain certain educational opportunities, employment prospects, and more.
