The Virginia Theft Project
Virginia has never created a “theft” statute. Instead, it has a hodge-podge of common law offenses and statutory creations under larceny, fraud, embezzlement, et cetera. I thought I’d start trying to lay out as much of Virginia’s theft related crimes as I could in a series of posts which I am going to label the Virginia Theft Project.
I hope to make one entry a week until I run out of things to write about. I’ll start with the more obvious common law crime of larceny and move from there.
