Below is a sample case of theft in Maryland.

Bryan v. State

Facts:

Defendant was convicted of theft, under Md. Code Ann., Crim. Law § 7-104(d) (2012), for cashing a counterfeit check and not returning the money. The Court of Special Appeals (Maryland) reversed the conviction, and the State sought further review.

Holdings:

The Maryland Court made the following holding:
  • When enacting the predecessor to Md. Code Ann., Crim. Law § 7-104(d) (2012), Maryland lawmakers sought to expand the common law notion of larceny to encompass situations in which a person acquires lost, mislaid, or mistakenly delivered property and later forms the intent to steal it. Indeed, a plain reading of Md. Code Ann., Crim. Law § 7-104(d) (2012) supports this notion, as Md. Code Ann., Crim. Law § 7-104(d)(3) (2012) states that intent to permanently deprive the owner of the property can occur when the person obtains the property or at a later time.
