What are the penalties for a theft crime?
If you take someone else's property without their consent and without
any intention of returning the property, the resulting charge is theft.
If the property had a value of under $500, then you are charged with
misdemeanor theft. Consequences can include up to one year in prison and a fine of up to $1,000.
If the property that was stolen is valued between $500 and $25,000, it
is a class C felony theft. If the property exceeds $25,000, it is a Class
B felony theft charge.
Felony theft charges can result in up to 15 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
Importantly, the details in the accusation determine what kind of charges
you may be facing. The total value of the items taken, whether or not
force was involved, and if you trespassed can change the theft charges
brought against you.
