Theft Laws in Florida

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 was the total value stolen, 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 Petty Theft in the First Degree so long as there were no other specific circumstances such as violence or assault 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 legal team has 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

Can You Go to Jail for Petty Theft in Florida?

In Florida, petit theft (more commonly known as petty theft) while being the lowest degree of theft can still result in serious penalties including possible jail time.

Possible jail sentences for petit theft include:

  • Second degree petit theft: up to 60 days in jail
  • First degree petit theft: one year in jail (not less)
