In Atlanta, theft by deception occurs when you take someone else’s property through deceptive means, for the purpose of intentionally depriving that person of his or her own property. Also, if you knowingly accept payment for services that won’t be rendered, you can be charged with theft by deception. The same goes for selling property with liens to someone without disclosing the property claims.
If you are charged with theft by deception, you face up to 15 years in prison along with the loss of your civil rights, including the right to vote and the right to possess a firearm. In addition, a felony conviction stays on your record and can make it very difficult to get or keep a job.
