Temporarily Taking Someone Else’s Property in Kansas Can Get You in Hot Water

“Chattel” refers to items of personal property. A person commits trespass to chattel if he or she intentionally possesses someone else’s property without their consent, even if only for a brief period of time. Courts require that some sort of actual harm results from the trespass to chattel in order for it to be actionable. Joyriding with someone else’s car may sound like fun and games but it can cost you money and its also a criminal act.

If you or a loved one is in need of legal assistance, call Ray Hodge & Associates at (316)269-1414. The initial consultation is free of charge, and if we agree to handle your case, we will work on a contingency fee basis, which means we get paid for our services only if we recover money on your behalf. In many cases, a lawsuit must be filed before an applicable expiration date, known as a statute of limitations. Please call right away to ensure that you do not waive your rights.
