Theft, Robbery, and Burglary

If you are charged with theft, robbery, or burglary, you may be subject to serious consequences: both robbery and burglary may be treated as a "strike," [link to 3 strikes post]punishable by time in county jail or the state penitentiary. Likewise, a Petty Theft or Grand Larceny conviction could mean a 6 month - 3 year jail sentence.

In addition, theft is a priorable offense, meaning that if you are if you're convicted of theft and then are caught stealing again (even for something as small as a pack of gum), you can be charged with a felony.

There are four kinds of theft:

 Petty Theft/Petty Larceny (property value under $400)
 Grand Theft/Grand Larceny (property value over $400)

“… My case became much more involved than we ever imagined and required an appeal to one of the rulings.  Fearing the cost, I became apprehensive.  But Ms. Brooks told me that what happened was wrong and that she was going forward regardless of the cost.  How many attorneys are willing to fight so hard without guarantee of payment?  We won the appeal because she worked tirelessly and never gave up.”
