Could someone tell me what the minimum and maximum sentence is for a "theft of service" charge under $5,000 in Allegheny County in Pittsburgh, PA?
Hello and thank you for your question.

The statute governing Theft of Services is 18 Pa. Cons. Stat. sec. 3926 and can be found here

Theft of services between $2000.00 and $25,000.00 is a Class 3 felony punishable by a fine of not less than $2,500 nor exceeding $15,000.00, or imprisonment not exceeding seven years, or both.

Theft of services between 200 and 2000 is a Class 1 misdemeanor.
Between 50 and 200 is a Class 2 misdemeanor
And under 50 a Class 3 misdemeanor.

Let me know if you need the penalties on the misdemeanors.
