New York City Theft Crime Lawyer
Understanding the Charges & Penalties
There are many different types of theft charges that you can face if you
have allegedly been involved in some sort of situation involving removing
property belonging to another person or party. Many of these can result
in a felony on your record and jail time. For example, even
shoplifting can be a serious offense.
Often called petit larceny, these types of smaller theft crimes can be
charged as class A misdemeanors, which could result in a year of jail
time. There are much more serious theft crimes that could call for years
in jail, restitution fines and other punishments. For example, grand larceny
in the first degree can be charged as a class B felony, resulting in up
to 25 years in prison.
Different types of theft crimes can include:
- Grand larceny
