It can be difficult to defend against Theft Charges and you should contact an experienced Indiana Theft Lawyer to review the specific facts of your case.  However, some potential defenses include:

  1. Claim of right or ownership: You may argue that you genuinely believed you had a legal right to the property or were the rightful owner. This defense requires you to show that your belief was reasonable under the circumstances.
  2. Lack of Intent:  Theft generally requires the intent to permanently deprive the owner of their property. In other words, the person committing the theft must have the intent to take someone else’s property without their permission and without intending to return it. If you can demonstrate that you did not have the required intent to commit theft, you may be able to use a “lack of intent” defense..
  3. Insufficient evidence: If the prosecution cannot prove all the elements of theft beyond a reasonable doubt, you may be acquitted of the charge.
  4. Mistaken identity: If you can provide evidence that you were not the person who committed the theft, you may be able to use mistaken identity as a defense.
  5. Alibi: If you can prove that you were elsewhere when the theft occurred, you may be able to use an alibi as a defense.
