Charges & Sentencing for Theft Charges
Larceny is the term that covers a broad range of theft crime offenses, covering anything from receiving stolen property and shoplifting to embezzlement, fraud, and burglary.
The severity of the larceny charges you face will depend on the:
- Monetary value of what was stolen
- Type of property you're accused of stealing
- Party who was allegedly stolen from
The theft of property valued at $1,200 or less would be treated as a misdemeanor, often punishable by up to one year in jail and a $1,500 fine. Stealing property worth more than $1,200 would be felony larceny, punishable in some cases by up to 5 years in prison, or 2 years in jail plus a $25,000 fine. However, regardless of the value of the gun, stealing a firearm is always viewed as a felony.
How can these charges escalate based on the victim? If someone is convicted of larceny where the victim is disabled or a senior citizen, then all it takes is stealing more than $250 worth of property, and the defendant could be fined $50,000 and spend a decade in prison.
Massachusetts courts may sometimes go easier on first-time offenders, especially if they fully pay restitution to the victim. Regardless of how the criminal case goes, there could also be civil penalties to contend with.
