Robbery, Burglary, Theft and related offensesOur Delaware criminal defense attorneys are well-versed in handling all types of theft crimes in the Superior Court and Court of Common Pleas.

What is Robbery?

Robbery is, in its most basic definition, stealing something from someone through the use of violence or threat of violence. Our attorneys have a great deal of experience defending robbery cases in the Delaware Superior Courts. We have defended people accused of robbing stores, restaurants, and other individuals (even a pizza delivery man one time).

What is Burglary?

Burglary, generally, means breaking into a dwelling with the intent to commit a crime therein. People often confuse Burglary with Robbery. Have you ever seen a television show or movie where the homeowner arrives home to find someone broke in and stole their possessions? What did they say? Chances are, they blurted out, “We’ve been robbed!” Well that’s not true. They were burglarized. Our attorneys have a lot of experience defending Burglary cases in Wilmington, Dover, and Georgetown in the Superior Court. The problem with Burglary cases is that they are easily consolidated. If a person is arrested and charged with one burglary case, they may find themselves charged with every burglary case in the county that seems similar, that fits the “modus operandi”. In this way, the detective can clear his docket, but the defendant is left to defend a lot of cases he didn’t commit.

What is Theft?

If you take something from someone else and don’t intend to return it, then that is theft. Title 11 Del.C. Section 841(a) states “A person is guilty of theft when the person takes, exercises control over or obtains property of another person intending to deprive that person of it or appropriate it.”

What are theft-related offenses?

There are many crimes in the Delaware Code that relate in some way to theft. For example, we have a criminal Extortion law, a law for Embezzlement, one for Shoplifting, and one for Fraud. A discussion of each of these crimes is a matter that will be explored in other pages. But if you have been arrested and charged with any of these offenses, please contact us for a free consultation with one of our experienced criminal defense lawyers.
