There are two levels of misdemeanors. These levels depend on the value of the items taken.
The first is called "petty theft" where is the lower level charge. If someone takes property valued at $500 or less they can get no more than 90 days in jail and face a fine of from $500 to $1,000.
The second is called "gross misdemeanor theft." If the value of the property is more than $500 but not more than $1,000, a theft offense is punishable by a sentence of imprisonment of not more than one year, or a fine of not more than $3,000, or both.
