Punishment for Theft Crimes in California

An experienced theft defense attorney can do a great deal for you in the stages before a trial. The reason is the penalties you face for theft charges depend a lot on the prosecutor or the DA handling the case. A criminal defense attorney can attempt to have the prosecutor DISMISS or REDUCE the charges.
For instance, if you face accusations of grand theft under California Penal Code section 487, you are accused of stealing items worth more than $950. Grand theft is a “wobbler” offense, meaning the prosecutor can charge you with a misdemeanor or a felony.
If you are convicted of a misdemeanor, you face up to one year in county jail and a $1,000 fine. A felony conviction can result in a sentence between 16 months and three years in jail and a $10,000 fine.
In many cases, we have been able to have our clients’ felony grand theft matters either DISMISSED or REDUCED to a misdemeanor with NO jail time having to be served.

How is Theft Crimes Prosecuted in California?

If your case goes to trial, the prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that you committed the crime. To do this, they have to prove all elements of the crime. If they cannot meet this burden of proof, then the charges against you will likely be dismissed or you will be acquitted.
