California’s Theft Laws
When prosecutors attempt to convict you of a crime of theft, there are a number of things that they must clearly prove. First, they must show that you definitely took away the property of another person, and that this object or piece of property was taken without the permission of the owner. Next, they must prove that you had designed to either hold on to the object forever, or at least for a long period of time. Finally, it must be shown that you physically removed and transported the object, even for a minimal amount of time and short distance.
