Types of Theft Crimes

Depending on the specifics of the situation, theft crimes may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. Regardless of the charges you are facing, an Alexandria theft attorney from our firm can provide aggressive, proactive representation that ensures that your rights and interests remain a priority throughout every stage of your case.

Theft crimes in Virginia include:

  • Petit Larceny – This type of larceny is stealing property from another person that has a value of less than $5 or less than $2,000 from anywhere. This is a Class 1 misdemeanor that is punishable by up to 12 months in jail, a fine of up to $2,500, or both.
  • Grand Larceny – Stealing property directly from another person in the same dollar amounts as petit larceny or a gun of any value often results in a grand larceny charge. This is a felony with punishments between one and 20 years in prison.
  • Robbery – Robbery includes a combination of theft and violence, such as causing physical harm, assault, or threats with a deadly weapon. This is a felony, punishable by five years to life in prison.
  • Carjacking – This is a more serious offense than robbery and includes intentionally taking a vehicle from another through violence or threats with a deadly weapon. A conviction can result in a prison sentence of 15 years to life.

In addition to these charges, a defendant can be charged with a theft crime for attempting to steal property. The charges may include attempted larceny and attempted grand larceny. Other possible charges include conspiring to commit larceny, larceny with intent to sell or distribute, and selling stolen goods.

Is Attempted Theft a Crime?

Yes, the attempt to commit theft is still a crime. Attempted theft occurs when an individual takes steps to steal something, but ultimately fails. Penalties for attempted crimes are generally weaker than if the individual had successfully committed the crime.
