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.

  • Purchased an item at pc richards on the 29th of august, while

    Purchased an item at pc richards on the 29th of august, while at the cashier I left my wallet at the counter. I was still at the store when I noticed my wallet missing. When I asked the sales rep to call security to see if anybody seen my wallet they asked me where I had left it and I told them at the counter. They took my information and said they would view there cctv. At that time I asked the cashier if anybody had seen my wallet and one of the cashiers stated that someone found a bag in the bathroom and dropped it off, they checked inside and my wallet was in the bag minus my cash 60 dollars. I was just happy to get my ID and credit cards back, I told security and told me they would conduct there investigation and contact me. On the 2nd of September someone was buzzing my intercom stating that it was about the 60 dollars, I did not open but somehow this person who stated his name as Kevin made it in and came to my apartment I did not open my door and told me he wanted to talk man to man and denied taking my wallet. All I said was how did you get my address and he said he did not have anything on him meaning weapons. I said I was going to call the police and he left. I called the pc richards store and spoke with the director of security and he stated that he was an employee of the store and that they have footage of said person taking my wallet and going to the back room. With this information I went to my local precinct to make a report, they told me since my wallet was taken with my credit cards it was considered a grand larceny and he would be picked up and I would need to get an order of protection on this person. Can pc richards be held liable for this. Please help. Thank you
