Misdemeanor Vs Felony Theft in Georgia
While there are many different ways theft can and does take place, all are categorized into misdemeanors or penalties. Misdemeanors are less serious offenses, and offenders are charged with misdemeanor theft when the value of stolen goods does not exceed $500.00. A person who commits theft on two occasions can expect a minimum $250 fine, and a third conviction carries with it a sentence of 30 days in jail or house arrest for a period of 120 days.
Felony theft is of a more serious nature and involves cases where the value of stolen goods exceeds $500.00. Sentences can range anywhere from 1 to 15 years, depending on the circumstances surrounding the incident and the value of stolen goods. A second felony theft offense may return a sentence of up to 20 years in prison. We also defend offenders who are charged with a violation of probation, and we work tirelessly to ensure that they do not get a second mark on their criminal record.
