What is the difference between grand theft & petty theft?
We represent people facing theft charges related to a wide range of theft
crimes in Idaho state courts - including embezzlement, extortion, automobile theft,
shoplifting, and receiving stolen goods. Depending on the amount allegedly stolen
and certain other factors, you can be charged with grand theft or petty
theft (petite theft).
Grand theft and petty theft are defined as:
Grand theft: Grand theft is charged when the value of the goods allegedly stolen is
more than $1000. Theft of credit cards or firearms is considered grand
theft under Idaho law, no matter what the value.
Petty theft (petite theft): Petty theft is charged when a person is accused of theft, but the circumstances
of the theft are not enough for grand theft to be charged.
Many people who have been accused of theft are worried about their criminal
record. They worry that a criminal history can stop them from getting
jobs or housing. The best way to protect your record is to work with a
dedicated theft crime attorney in Boise - someone who will fight hard
to have charges dismissed or judgments withheld.
