How are theft crimes categorized?
In its most basic definition, theft is the act of taking someone else’s belongings without permission or intending to prevent the owner from accessing their belongings. The value of the property involved will determine whether the crime is a misdemeanor or a felony. When the stolen property is worth more than $250, it is almost always prosecuted as a felony.
There are a number of different theft offenses, including:
Although similar, a person commits robbery when they take another individual’s property through the use of intimidation or violence. Aggravated robbery means that bodily harm occurs during the act. Auto theft is one of the most serious crimes a person can be charged with, as it is typically considered a felony. Defendants can face up to 15 years in prison or up to $15,000 in fines.
