Florida Theft Laws
Florida is one of the strictest states when it comes to dealing with theft crimes. The penalties for these offenses are typically dependent on the specific nature of the crime, if anybody was harmed during the act, what the value stolen was, and several other factors. For example, if the value of the property stolen was greater than $100 yet less than $300, the first-time offense is usually characterized as first-degree petty theft as long as specific circumstances, such as violence or assault, were not involved. The penalty for this crime is up to $1,000 in fines and 12 months in jail. Subsequent offenses or those involving assault are punished far more severely.
Other offenses that our Stuart theft crime lawyers have a firm grasp of include the following and more:
- Worthless check
- Scheme to defraud
- Dealing in stolen property
- Uttering a forged instrument
- Failure to return leased property
- False information to a pawnbroker
