Larceny theft crimes can range from a misdemeanor to a felony depending on the value of the property stolen, and punishable by jail or prison time, as well as potential fines and court costs. The most frequent occurring larceny is stealing from a retail store which is called retail fraud. If the value of what is stolen is under $1,000, it is a misdemeanor, if over, a felony. If a person is in possession of stolen property, they are committing the crime of receiving and/or concealing stolen property. The penalty is also geared on the value of the stolen property in their possession. There are a number of circumstances surrounding these crimes that can be investigated and defended by an attorney with proper experience in criminal law that may result in dismissal or lessening of the charge.
