When you hear terms in the criminal justice system, you might start to wonder exactly what each term means. Seeing that someone is being accused of larceny might be one of those instances. The term larceny is one that some states, including Virginia, use to differentiate a type of theft that doesn't include embezzlement, robbery and a variety of other theft-based crimes.
Police have accused a woman and a man of being responsible for theft in two robberies in Woodbridge, Virginia. The man is a resident of the town, while the woman lives in nearby Burke. In one such robbery, a 37-year-old male resident claimed that he was robbed while he was going to supposedly meet a woman for the first time. When he arrived at the designated rendezvous point, an unknown male accompanying the woman allegedly brandished a knife and took his cell phone and a quantity of money before stealing his car and fleeing in it.
When anyone is charged with a crime, the consequences are serious. Ensuring that you have the best defense is not something that should be taken for granted. This is especially true for teenagers who have a lot of time left in their future that could be affected.
