Potential Penalties for Theft Crimes in California
At the less serious end of the theft crime spectrum is petty theft, which is defined as theft of money or property that is valued at less than $400. Penalties for petty theft may include up to 6 months in jail, costly fines, restitution to the victim, community service, probationary restrictions, and more. In addition to this, individuals who already have a petty theft conviction on their record may be facing felony charges for this crime.
At the more serious end of the theft crime spectrum is grand theft, which is defined as theft of money or property that is valued at more than $400.
