Theft Crimes Defense Law Firm

Theft will be charged when a person steals or attempts to steal property from someone else.  The type and value of the property taken determines the severity of the offense.  Theft can be charged as a first or second degree misdemeanor, or as a first, second or third degree felony.  Theft of property worth $300 or more, or of certain items such as motor vehicles or firearms, is a felony offense.  It is important to note that theft and burglary can be charged together.  The burglary statute punishes the defendant for the entering into an area with the intent to commit an offense, while the theft statute punishes the defendant for the taking or attempt to take items from that restricted area.  In addition to possible incarceration, theft of a motor vehicle also carries a possible driver’s license suspension.
