Definition of Grand Theft

Grand Theft is commonly defined as feloniously stealing, taking, or carrying away the property of another which is of a value exceeding $400. An experienced attorney can help you fight the serious allegation of grand theft. It is always in your best interest to retain the services of an experienced and knowledgeable attorney who can help you to establish a successful defense. A related, more specified offense is the crime of Grand Theft Auto, a violation of the same section of the Penal Code, section 487. This crime, as the name suggests, is committed when any individual commits the theft of any automobile. It is automatically a grand theft crime to steal an automobile just as it is with a firearm.

Grand Theft Punishment

Grand Theft can be prosecuted as either a misdemeanor or a felony depending on the value of the goods that were taken and the prior criminal record of the individual accused. A person that is convicted of grand theft charges may be punished with:

  • Imprisonment in county jail or state prison (not exceeding one year) and/or Fines

Any individual who has had a prior conviction or is currently on probation or parole may face enhanced criminal charges and/or sentencing. Furthermore, if the individual used a weapon in the commission of the crime the charges may be even more severe such as imprisonment up to 3 years in state prison. If you or your loved one is facing a grand theft conviction, it is important that you retain the services of an experienced and knowledgeable attorney.
