Are you aware of these burglary, other property crime stats?

According to the Federal Bureau of Investigation's Uniform Crime Reporting Program, the following offenses are considered property crimes:

-- Burglary

-- Motor vehicle theft

-- Arson

-- Larceny theft

With a theft offense, a person has the intention to take property or money; however, there is no threat of force or use of force against a victim. Because there is so much gray area, many people are charges with a property theft crime such as burglary when they did not actually take part in the crime.

These stats will give you a better idea of how widespread these crimes have become:

-- In 2011, there were more than 9 million property crime offenses committed in the United States.

-- Of all the property crimes in 2011, larceny theft was responsible for 68 percent.

-- In 2011, property crime resulted in losses of approximately $15.6 billion.

These statistics show that property crime is serious. Not only does it have a negative impact on society as a whole, but it can lead to financial losses.

It is not uncommon for a person to be charged with one type of property crime -- such as larceny theft -- when in all actuality this is not the crime he or she committed. Even the most basic of mistakes can lead to a person being wrongfully charged, which could have an impact on his or her penalty.

Many people who are charged with a property crime realize the importance of learning more, including their legal rights and penalties. Some consult with an attorney shortly after their arrest to ensure they are treated fairly.
