Grand Larceny Charges

What is grand larceny?

Grand larceny is the theft of an individual’s money or personal property. Depending on the severity of the crime and the value of the property stolen, many states may classify the theft as a larceny or grand larceny. Some states may not even recognize grand larceny. Given below are some important questions about grand larceny that have been answered by the Experts.

A theft of what amount would be considered a grand larceny in Florida?

According to the Statute 812.014, a theft of above $300 may be considered a grand larceny in the state of Florida.

What is the penalty for grand larceny in the state of Arizona?

Grand larceny is classified as a felony in Arizona. If an individual is convicted of this offense and the amount involved is more than $500, then the individual may be imprisoned in the state penitentiary for up to 5 years. The penalty would be at the discretion of the court if the amount involved is less than $500. In such a situation, the accused may either be incarcerated in county jail for up to 1 year, for one or more nights or only on weekends. The individual may also have to pay a fine of $5,000 and provide the victim with restitution.

Would a grand larceny charge remain on an individual’s record?

In most situations, all criminal charges, including the grand larceny charges may remain on an individual’s record. If the individual wants to get it removed, they may have to request for the charges to be expunged. They may also request the authorities to seal the arrest record so that it is removed from the police agency that arrested the individual as well.

What consequences would an individual charged with grand larceny face in Florida?

Grand larceny is classified as a felony in Florida. An individual convicted of this offense may face up to 5 years in jail and be fined for up to $5,000. However, if the individual does not have any previous records, they may be given probation with the condition of restitution to the victim.

Would an individual lose his/her rights to purchase firearms if he/she is convicted of grand larceny?

If the individual was charged with a felony for a grand larceny conviction, then he/she may lose his/her rights to own a firearm. He/she may have to try and negotiate to bring down the charge to a misdemeanor if he/she wants to purchase a firearm.

What is the statute of limitations for grand larceny in California?

Since grand larceny is classified as a felony, there is no statute of limitations on convicting an individual of the crime.

Can a person request for the grand larceny charges to be lowered to a misdemeanor if he/she agrees to repay the stolen amount?

In most situations, an individual may request the court to lower his/her charges to a misdemeanor if he/she agrees to repay the victim of the crime. However, repayment may not guarantee a reduction in the charges.

Would an individual be denied a passport if he/she was formerly convicted of a grand larceny and served his/her sentence?

If an individual was formerly convicted of larceny and he/she completed his/her sentence, then he/she may not be denied a passport.

Grand larceny may lead to severe consequences. The charge may remain on an individual’s record for his/her entire life. It may also take away some of his/her rights. In some cases, depending on the severity of the crime, the individual may request the court to reduce the charges from a felony to a misdemeanor. However, one must know whom to contact and what steps to take in order to do so. For individuals who need more questions answered about grand larceny changes turn to the Experts for these answers.

Recent Grand Larceny Questions

  • I am in a terrible situation. My attorney is suing me for quantum

    I am in a terrible situation. My attorney is suing me for quantum meruit and breach of contract and I am suing him back for breach of fiduciary duty, fraud, fraudulent inducement and fraudulent misrepresentaton. Attorney "represented" a case that was already time-barred for three months when he took it on. The case was dismissed with prejudice and now he is suing me for almost $100,000 in purported attorneys fees. The attorney appears to be in cohoots with the court justices and has written a letter to the judge that she not read my voluminous reply in opposition to default judgement and summary judgment when making a decision on his cause of action against me I believe because of my ethnicity and religion. I would like to file criminal charges against the attorney for perjury, collusion, hate crime, obstruction, malicious abuse of process grand larceny, violation of the Hobbs Act as well. These cases which are being handled in an IAS Part were formerly handled by one common justice Ba who denied a motion to consolidate these cases and cases were "transferred" or they have now been passed to justice Ma and finally to justice Mo who consistently denies my motions for procedural defects. The attorney now wants to drop the case against me, on the condition that I drop my case against him without paying me back that money he stole from me for misrepresenting my Federal cause of action. I believe these individuals are operating as a RICO and I would like to have justice Mo recused from these cases and the cases held in abeyance until I can file a criminal charge against my former attorney and any accomplices. I am a pro se plaintiff and defendant. My questions are: How do I request a recusal? What are the statutes associated with the causes of action presented in this writing? How do I request an abeyance in state Supreme Court?
  • I purchased a bag online and sold it online as well. I didnt

    I purchased a bag online and sold it online as well. I didn't know that the purse was fake and the one that I sold to said it was fake. So she sent me back the bag, she's requesting refund and I bank locally and out of town until Tuesday. I sent her a text and told her that I will send her a refund when I return however she stated that she's at the Sheriff's department filing Fraud and Grand Larceny against me - is this a valid?
  • Dimitry, So, what do you suggest? What will be better -

    Dimitry,

    So, what do you suggest? What will be better - don't touch this issue at all? Use it just in case? I mean the overall perspective of the appeal.

    Other than this issue I have only one more but I am afraid it will come to the same point: my wife didn't report either money she received "working for me" or her babysitting wages. Neither to NYCHA (that considers it Grand Larceny) nor to IRS. This was touched at cross-examination but my questioning attempts were blocked
