Felony and Misdemeanor Theft Charges in State, Federal and Juvenile Court

There are many criminal charges that are considered “theft”:

  • Shoplifting
  • Bad checks
  • Theft
  • Burglary
  • Robbery
  • Identity theft
  • Fraud
  • Embezzlement

The consequences for a theft crime can be severe. Even shoplifting something worth less than $50 can get you charged with a Class C misdemeanor and up to $500 in fines. If the value of the property is $1,500 to $20,000, it’s a felony and you could go to a state jail. More than $20,000 and you could end up with a prison sentence.
