Have You Been Charged With Petit/Grand Theft?
Petit/Grand theft is a type of criminal offense that occurs when a person takes another person’s property without consent and with the intention of never returning the property to the rightful owner. In the state of Florida, petit/grand theft is a serious crime that usually involves the theft of property that is highly valued. There are various degrees of grand theft and the degrees depend upon the value of the property stolen. Petit theft involves the theft of money or property valued at less than $300. Grand theft involved money or property valued at over $300.
When a person commits petit theft, he/she will be charged with a misdemeanor offense. When a person is charged with grand theft, they will be charged with a felony. The person’s criminal charges and legal penalties will also depend upon if the person carried a weapon during the theft, the type of theft crime committed, how many previous theft-related charges has in his past and the person’s criminal history.
