Speak with a Utah Theft by Deception Attorney
Theft by deception is another way to say that someone has stolen property from another through trickery, that is, the defendant had to have “deceived” the alleged victim and intended to deprive the person of property through that deception. See Utah Code 76-6-405.
Under the common law this crime was known as larceny by trick. Theft by deception often arises in employee-employer relationships. An employee who is entrusted with checking out the cash register at closing and who skims some cash off the top for himself can be charged with theft by deception. Like other crimes involving theft, theft by deception can range anywhere from a misdemeanor to a second degree felony.
