Understanding the Charges & Penalties

Theft Crime

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
  • Petite larceny
