Theft

Theft is the unlawful taking of another’s property with the intent to permanently or temporarily deprive that person of said property and/or take that property and convert it to your own use.  More simply, it is essentially taking what does not belong to you.  Theft is also a crime of moral turpitude.  T’s a deportable offense that can have a significant impact on your future employment.

Anything less than $300 is considered a misdemeanor and referred to as petit theft.  While this is a misdemeanor and most people that are convicted are rarely given lengthy sentences, the consequences of a theft conviction are often discovered long after the case is over.  Especially if you wish to change professions to a Nurse, Doctor, Lawyer, Police Officer and a host of other professions that a conviction of a theft charge may disqualify you from achieving those professions.

Anything over $300.00 is considered a felony, the degree of the felony is also based on the amount (over $20,000.00 is 2nd Degree Grand Theft) and aggravating factors (steal from an elderly person may raise the level to 1st-degree grand theft).
