Common Types of Theft Crimes

Most theft crime charges will result in jail time if you are convicted. When facing theft crime charges, you need an experienced attorney who will aggressively fight for your rights. Theft crimes vary, and you may be facing one of the following charges:

  • Burglary is when the perpetrator breaks into a building to commit the theft. Burglary is a felony charge.
  • Petty theft is knowingly stealing someone else's property valued at less than $950. Petty theft is generally a misdemeanor.
  • Grand theft is knowingly stealing someone else's property valued at $950 or more. Grand theft charges can be misdemeanor or felony, depending on the circumstances.

What are the Penalties for Theft Crimes in California?

When it comes to theft crimes in California, understanding the potential penalties is crucial. Misdemeanor theft charges can lead to several consequences, including probation, short-term imprisonment, fines, and the requirement to pay restitution to the victims. However, if a weapon or firearm was involved in the theft, the charge is typically elevated to a felony offense.

Felony theft convictions carry more severe penalties, such as longer jail sentences and heavier fines. Moreover, it's important to recognize that having a theft offense on your record can negatively impact your prospects of securing quality employment.

To navigate the legal complexities and increase your chances of avoiding conviction, enlisting an experienced Bakersfield theft crimes attorney is essential. The quality of your defense attorney plays a vital role in determining the outcome of your case. Therefore, investing in a skilled legal representative is crucial to protect your rights and achieve the best possible result.
