Grand Theft – Felony and Misdemeanor Punishment

01 July 2011

Orange County Grand Theft Attorney

If you were arrested for a theft crime, you can either be charged with Grant Theft or Petty Theft.  Grand theft is the more serious type of theft crime out of the two.

Grand theft will be charged if the value of the property in question has a value of over $950.00.

The crime of grand theft is a wobbler.  This means that the crime can be charged as either a felony or a misdemeanor.  A felony conviction can result in up to 3 years imprisonment.  A misdemeanor conviction is punishable by up to 1 year in jail.

Negotiation with the judge or prosecutor can be vital to getting the best possible result in your case.  Proper negotiation can mean the difference between a felony or a misdemeanor, or even a complete dismissal.
