Thefts / Frauds / Robbery

There are countless ways in which clients get charged with theft, fraud or robbery related charges. Theft charges can range for shoplifting a $10.00 item from a department store to stealing millions of dollars from one’s employer. Similarly, robberies can range from stealing someone's iPod by using some force, to robbing a bank with a gun.

What is Theft?

We all generally understand that theft is taking something that doesn't belong to you without the permission of the owner of the property. Shoplifting usually involves a theft from a retail store rather than a private citizen.  Other types of theft, such as a theft from an employer are considered far more serious than shoplifting.

What is Fraud?

Fraud can generally be described as the wrongful or criminal deception intended to result in financial or personal gain. There are many different types of fraud ranging from falsifying invoices, failing to deliver a product or service, or identity theft and internet fraud.

What is a Robbery?

Robbery is taking or attempting to take something of value from another by violence or the threat of violence. Robbery can be committed against individuals, businesses, and institutions like banks. Threatening people on the streets with a baseball bat and demanding their money and jewellery is robbery, even if the person is not injured.

Possible Defences

Each case must be assessed on its own merits. Suny Virk will carefully look at possible defences of mistaken identity or facts, and the possibility of alternate suspects. At times, the client may acknowledge the commission of the offence, and we would then attempt to mitigate the consequences by making restitution to the aggrieved party.

Mr. Virk has the experience, resource and tools required to provide you with the most effective legal defence, often not resulting in a criminal record. It is important to remember that every allegation of theft, fraud or robbery is a fact specific inquiry. Consulting a lawyer will assist you with identifying potential defences to this type of allegation.
