There are two main classes for theft crimes in Florida. They are petit theft and grand theft. Petit theft is a misdemeanor and can be charged properly if the amount of the property stolen falls under $300.00. This is a second degree misdemeanor punishable by up to 60 days in the county jail. Under certain circumstances this can also be charged as a first degree misdemeanor where the maximum punishment is 364 days in the county jail and a fine can be levied against you for up to $1,000.00. Grand theft which is a felony can be charged of the dollar amount of the stolen property exceeds $300.00. The severity of the felony charged depends entirely on the dollar amount of the value of the property. It can range from a third degree felony all the way up to a first degree felony. There are other felonies that fall under the ambit of a “theft charge.” Examples of these are shoplifting, fraud, forgery, burglary, robbery, identity theft, vehicle theft, internet fraud, Medicare fraud, Medicaid fraud and credit card theft.
