Being convicted of this offense can be detrimental to your chances of gainful employment and even dismissal of any professional licenses.

The consequences of a grand theft conviction

These charges are classified as first, second, or third degree felonies. We at Heather Harris Law understand the finest aspects of Florida statute 812.014 in addition to the fact that many times the value of stolen goods is inflated. Our task is to reduce the charge and penalty based on these facts. It is also important to understand that these charges can only be levied when the value of the property is over $300. Third degree felonies apply when the value of the property is not more than $20,000 in addition imprisonment up to 5 years. When the value of a property allegedly stolen is between $20,000 and $100,000 it is considered a second degree felony with a maximum prison sentence of 15 years. First degree felonies attract the harshest punishment for theft anything valued above $100,000 with state imprisonment up to 30 years. In order to get the least possible sentencing or dismissal of your case it is important to have an attorney to represent you.
