Theft Charges

If a person makes the decision to steal or take an item of value from another person they may face serious theft charges. Theft crimes can be charged as grand theft or petty theft, also known as “petit theft”. Law enforcement will take into account the value of the item(s) stolen and determine how theft charges will be filed. If an item stolen is valued at or under $300, then a person will be faced with a petty theft charge, which is a misdemeanor offense. When an item is valued over $300, then a person will most likely be charged with grand theft, which is a felony offense. Both are very serious crimes and can result in some serious jail or prison time if convicted.
