Most offences of dishonesty involve property, and the offences of stealing and fraud are the two main types of dishonesty offences. Given the vast amount of commercial and non-commercial transactions that occur daily between citizens, it is important to understand what acts constitute an offence of either stealing or fraud.
Queensland courts are prepared and desire to record criminal convictions for dishonesty offences due to the interest of employers to know about this form of criminal behaviour. It is very important that you seek legal advice if you are ever charged with an offence of dishonesty.
