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.

We Handle Robbery and Burglary Cases in St. Louis

Robbery charges are taken very seriously, especially when the alleged suspect is armed with a weapon. In most cases, the prosecutor's main evidence comes from the testimony of a victim or witness. The whole case revolves around identification. Burglary occurs when a person trespasses on property with the intent of theft. Alone, this is a burglary in the second degree.

Burglary in the second degree occurs if your crime is committed along with the following:

  • You are armed with a weapon
  • You cause or threaten injury
  • Another person is present in the building
