Grand Theft Protecting Ventura's Rights, One Case at a Time.

What is Grand Theft?

Defense from a Ventura Theft Crime Lawyer

Grand theft cases can be very complicated and the consequences can be harsh. There are a number of guidelines that define what constitutes as grand theft, and they are defined under California Penal Code 487. Grand theft includes taking another person's property which is valued at $950 or more. Crimes under this monetary value may be handled as petty theft.

It can also involve taking an automobile, firearm, animals or property being carried by another, even if the value of this item is under $950. If an employee stole from their employer, the value of items taken during a 12 month period would be added up to determine the extent of the crime. The crime can be committed through larceny, fraud, trickery or embezzlement; including physically carrying the item away, deceiving the owner into giving it away or taking something that has been delegated to you.

Determining and Prosecuting Charges

These crimes can be penalized in one of two ways; as either a misdemeanor or a felony. The circumstances involved in the criminal accusations and the past criminal history of a suspect are reviewed in the decision making process. A misdemeanor can result in up to a year in jail and a felony can lead to three years in prison. As in any crime, the use of a weapon will increase repercussions and having a firearm present will make charges a felony. Being charged with grand theft not only puts you at risk of incarceration, there may also be substantial fines, restitution, community service, or probation.

To protect your rights and your future, it is crucial that you contact a Ventura criminal defense attorney without delay.
