Under Arizona law, theft can manifest itself in any number of ways and is certainly not limited to physical property. Fraud and the uncompensated use of for-pay services are both examples of more nuanced forms of theft. Even the failure to make a reasonable attempt to restore lost property to its owner can be a criminal offense. No matter what your charges involve, speak with a lawyer immediately and strategize an effective criminal defense.
