The penalties for theft vary depending on the value of the goods stolen, a defendant's past criminal history, and whether any aggravating or mitigating circumstances existed, such as injuries or use of a weapon. In general, the higher the value of the stolen goods, the more severe the penalties. If charged with a theft related offense, you could face incarceration, fines, and a criminal record. In order to avoid the maximum penalties, it is important to have an experienced criminal defense attorney fighting to protect your rights.
