Penalties for Theft

If you are convicted of a theft offense, then you will be facing serious penalties. Depending on the offenses you were arrested for, you will be charged with either a misdemeanor or a felony. Petty theft crimes or shoplifting crimes are often charged as misdemeanors, while burglary and armed robbery are charged as felonies. If convicted of taking property from a person, you could face sentencing of 2 – 15 years, along with heavy fines and restitution. If you were charged with a Class 1 felony for theft, then probation will not be an option for you.
