Misdemeanor Penalties

A single conviction for a minor theft crime by a person with no criminal history usually leads to a minor penalty, typically a fine, restitution, probation or a short jail term. In some instances, the judge may dismiss a first misdemeanor offense if the person injured by the theft appears in court and acknowledges that he or she has been compensated for the loss. The Law Offices of Sir Ashley J. Harrison understands that staying out of jail is of great importance to most defendants and in some circumstances, it may be possible to obtain other consequences as oppose to jail time.

Felony Sentencing

Felony Theft crimes have more severe penalties than those classified as misdemeanors. Felony theft crimes are punishable by more than one year in jail. Generally, theft crimes that are charged as a felony involve force and/or violence.
