Theft Laws in Ohio

Theft is actually an umbrella term that encompasses many different types of crimes, all of which involve the unlawful taking of another’s property. Examples of theft crimes include:

  • Distributing bad checks
  • Identity theft/credit card theft
  • Burglary
  • Forgery
  • Complicity in a theft
  • Petty theft including shoplifting
  • Robbery/armed robbery
  • Home invasion

In some cases, a person with a misdemeanor theft charge may be permitted to partake in a diversion program. If allowed, the person will complete various steps of the program, under supervision, as an alternative to traditional criminal justice proceedings. However, these diversion programs are only considered for offenses that do not involve violence or physical harm.
