Criminal conversion, in criminal law, is usually defined as the crime of exerting unauthorised use or control of someone else's property. It differs from theft in that it does not include the element of intending to deprive the owner of the use of that property. As such, it is a lesser included offense of the crime of theft. An example might be tapping someone's power line, cable or gas.
