Petit Larceny And Grand Larceny

In New York, the difference between petit larceny and grand larceny is the value of the item that was allegedly stolen. If you were accused of stealing an item worth $1,000 or more, you will be charged with grand larceny, which is a felony. If the item you were accused of stealing is worth less than $1,000, you will face misdemeanor charges of petit larceny, often referred to as petty larceny.

Our Poughkeepsie theft offenses attorney frequently handles cases involving shoplifting from stores. Cases may also involve allegations of stealing from vehicles. These cases may also involve theft of credit cards and debit cards, and the use of stolen cards, which can lead to additional charges of false impersonation.

In addition to the various penalties that will come with a conviction for a theft charge, you may also be forced to pay restitution if you no longer have the stolen item in your possession.

Defense Strategies In Theft Cases

When building your defense case, we will look carefully at the evidence against you. Were you caught with the stolen property? If so, was the search and seizure conducted correctly, or were your constitutional rights overlooked? Were you caught on video? How clear is the video evidence? Even if the evidence seems strong, there may be extenuating circumstances, such as issues of drug or alcohol addiction, that may be used to secure a better outcome.
