Theft Lawyer Attorneys Serving the Akron, Ohio Area
Theft is defined as the dishonest taking of property belonging to another person with the intention of depriving the owner permanently of its possession. The severity of a theft charge depends on the value of the property taken, as well as the situation surrounding the theft, such as if a weapon was used and if the individual already has a criminal record.
Petty Theft vs. Grand Theft
There are two kinds of theft in criminal law: petty theft and grand theft. Petty theft is if the item is below $1000 and considered a misdemeanor. Grand theft is over $1000 and classified as a felony. There are five degrees of grand theft based on the value of property taken and behavior during the crime. First degree grand theft has the most stringent consequences of over 11 years in prison and $20,000 in fines.
