Theft

A theft crime is a criminal act that occurs when a person steals another person’s property without permission.  Theft crimes tend to range in severity, from misdemeanor offenses to felony offenses.  The type of offense is usually determined by the value of the property that was stolen by the theft crime offender.  For example, if a person stole property that was valued at or below $300, he/she would be charged with a misdemeanor offense.  If a person stole property that was valued above $300, he/she would typically be charged with a felony.


Whether a person has been charged with a misdemeanor or felony theft crime in Florida, it is always in his/her best interest to obtain the services of a criminal defense attorney.  By working with a criminal defense attorney, people can save themselves a great deal of stress by knowing that their case is being handled by a reputable legal professional.

How an Attorney Can Help
