INTRODUCED

HB 1779 -- Theft of Service

Co-Sponsors:  Ross, Koller

This bill creates the crime of theft of services, which is a
class C felony if the value of the services is $750 or more, and
a class A misdemeanor for services less than $750.  An offender
commits the crime if he or she intentionally avoids payment by
securing performance of services, by directing services to a
third person by deception or threat, or by holding rental
property beyond a rental period without consent.  Intent to
avoid payment may be presumed if the offender leaves a place of
business without paying after receiving services, fails to
return rental property within a certain period, or returns
rental property but fails to pay rental charges within a certain
period.
