Theft crimes refer to the illegal taking of someone’s property without their consent. If someone is convicted of a theft crime, it is a very serious measure that could have far reaching consequences. It is best to seek counsel as quickly as possible if you have been charged with any of the following offenses: shoplifting, burglary, armed robbery, fraud, credit card theft, identity theft, and robbery.
Under Florida laws, stealing property valuing more than $300 can result in the charge of grand theft. The punishments for theft crimes increase with subsequent offenses. Here is a list of possible consequences: community service, probation, imprisonment, fines, and house arrest.
