Petty Theft Vs. Grand Theft

Theft crimes are ranked according to the worth of the item stolen. Petty theft crimes pertain to stolen items valued at $950 or less. You may be facing a misdemeanor charge, a fine, and / or up to six months of imprisonment.

If you have been accused of grand theft, your crime likely involved an item valued at over $950, a car, or removal of the item while it was still in the owner's possession. Grand theft charges can either be recorded as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on how your case progresses and on the nature of the item stolen.

Whether your crime is filed as a misdemeanor or a felony directly impacts your potential length of incarceration. For aggressive defense to avoid conviction, call our office to schedule a free consult!
