Some common defenses to theft charges include:

  • Mistaken identity: If you have been falsely accused of theft, you may be able to argue that you were not the person who committed the crime. This is a common defense in theft cases, especially when the crime was committed by someone who was wearing a mask or other disguise.
  • Consent: If you had the owner’s consent to take the property, you cannot be convicted of theft. This is a common defense in theft cases that involve disputes over ownership.
  • Intoxication: If you were intoxicated at the time the theft was committed, you may be able to argue that you did not have the intent to commit the crime. This is a common defense in theft cases that involve shoplifting.
  • Entrapment: If you were induced to commit the theft by a law enforcement officer, you may be able to argue that you were entrapped. This is a common defense in theft cases that involve sting operations.
