How does kleptomania affect a person?

While kleptomania is a rare mental disorder, it can wreak havoc on those afflicted. It can also incur serious legal repercussions when a person is unable to curb their compulsive desire to steal. It's characterized by an urgent need to steal items that have little or no value. People with kleptomania often steal items they could otherwise afford to purchase, making the disorder even more inscrutable to others. 

False allegations of theft

When it comes to criminal charges involving theft, there are many different factors that may need to be considered. However, some cases involve allegations that are completely false. There are a variety of reasons why someone may be falsely accused of theft. For example, they may have been in the wrong place at the wrong time, and someone whose property went missing may believe that the individual was responsible for the stolen property even though they had nothing to do with the crime. Or, someone may intentionally accuse another person of stealing something from them in an attempt to get revenge.

Properly dealing with lost property

You may share the same opinion of most in Fullerton in that the idea of your ever being accused of a crime as serious as theft may seem ludicrous to you. At face value, an allegation of theft seems fairly cut-and-dry: either you stole something or you did not. Yet ask many of those that have come to us here at The Law Office of Jacqueline Goodman seeking assistance, and they will tell you that conduct that you consider to be completely innocent can often lead to criminal scrutiny.
