When you are falsely accused of theft

People are falsely accused of many different offenses, from assault to traffic violations. However, some can be especially frustrating, such as false allegations of theft. There are many different reasons why someone may wrongly accuse another person of stealing from them. In some cases, the allegations may be an attempt to get even or bring the person down, while others may be the result of someone falsely believing that a particular individual stole from them (when it was actually someone else). In Charlotte, and across North Carolina, it is essential for those who have been wrongly accused of theft to immediately review relevant legal considerations and protect their rights.

Dealing with lost property in North Carolina

Most in Charlotte may not have any difficulty defining what "theft" is: someone taking something from another. This may be why excuses offered by as to why someone was found to be in possession of another's property are dismissed as being just that. At the same time, however, most have encountered a situation where they have come across something that appears to be lost and taken possession of it. In such a case, they are retaining another's property, yet does keeping a lost item constitute theft
