Another term for theft. Although the definition of this term differs from state to state, it typically means taking property belonging to another with the intent to permanently deprive the owner of the property. If the taking is non forceful, it is larceny; if it is accompanied by force or fear directed against a person, it is robbery, a much more serious offense.

MISDEMEANOR

IMPRISON

Punishment in a criminal case. A sentence can range from a fine and community service to life imprisonment or death.
