Civil & Criminal Penalties

Theft crimes that are of a more serious nature can result in felony charges. Conviction for a felony carries extensive jail time. A less serious theft crime, which is often called petit larceny, can still result in up to a year of jail time.

Civil penalties can also be imposed on individuals who are convicted of committing theft crimes. You can be held civilly liable for damages that you were convicted of committing against the owner or merchant of the store from which the property was stolen.

You may be required to provide restitution for:

  • The retail price of the merchandise
  • A penalty that cannot exceed a total greater than five times the retail price
