Put the Experience of a Former State Prosecutor on Your Side

Miami Theft Crimes Attorney

Aggressively Fighting on Your Behalf

In general, a theft crime is a criminal offense which involves depriving another individual of their property through deceit, force, or false pretenses. The severity of theft charges usually depends on the value of the property that was stolen and under what circumstances it was taken. For example, if you allegedly used a firearm in the commission of the crime, your charges may be elevated. These types of crimes are complex and are best left in the hands of a skilled defense attorney.

Burglary & Robbery Laws in Florida

In the state of Florida, burglary occurs when an individual enters a property with the intent to commit a crime while there. Even if a crime does not actually take place, simply having the intent to commit a crime is enough to bring burglary charges. Robbery, on the other hand, happens when an individual uses violence, force, or threat of violence to take another person’s assets, property, or money. Burglary charges may be brought in conjunction with robbery charges in certain situations. For example, if an individual broke into someone else’s home and then demanded money while holding a firearm, they may face both burglary and robbery charges.

The following are several theft offenses and their corresponding penalties:

  • First-degree grand theft – The property which was stolen was valued at $100,000 or more. Penalties include up to 30 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000.
  • Second-degree grand theft - The property which was stolen was valued between $2,000 and $99,000. Penalties include up to 15 years in prison and fines of up to $10,000.
  • Third-degree grand theft - The property which was stolen was valued between $300 and $19,999. Penalties include up to 5 years in jail and fines of up to $5,000.
  • First-degree petty theft - The property which was stolen was valued between $100 and $299. Penalties include up to 1 year in jail and fines of up to $1,000.
  • Second-degree petty theft - The property which was stolen was valued under $100. Penalties include up to 60 days in jail and fines of up to $500.
