LOS ANGELES GRAND THEFT DEFENSE LAWYER

Protecting The Legal Rights of People Accused of Grand Theft 

Grand theft in California, according to Penal Code Section 487(a), refers to the illegal taking of someone else’s property worth more than $950. This offense can result in either a felony or a misdemeanor charge, depending on factors such as the defendant’s criminal record, the value of the stolen property, whether a weapon was used, and the level of criminal skill needed to commit the crime. Generally, the more severe the offense, the higher the chance of it being classified as a felony crime.

If the stolen item is worth $950 or less, it is considered a misdemeanor known as California Petty Theft, as per Penal Code Section 484.

If you are facing grand theft charges in Los Angeles, seek legal assistance from Cyrus Tabibnia, Los Angeles Theft Crimes Defense Attorney. Contact the Tabibnia Law Firm for a free and confidential consultation at 866-713-2159.

What Is Considered Grand Theft In Los Angeles?

The definition of grand theft is outlined in California Penal Code Section 487, which states that it occurs when property valued at over $950 is stolen. In general, any theft that exceeds this monetary limit is considered grand theft regardless of the specific circumstances.

However, there are exceptions where a theft can be classified as grand theft even if the dollar amount stolen was lower. For example, if the property was taken directly from the owner by means of force or threat, such as in a mugging, the theft is considered grand theft. Additionally, theft of certain items such as a motor vehicle, firearm, horse, or agricultural products or fish/shellfish valued at $250 or more, also qualifies as grand theft.

If the stolen property falls under the $950 limit and does not meet any of the other criteria mentioned above, it will be charged as petty theft, a less severe offense. In some cases, a skilled lawyer can get a grand theft charge reduced to petty theft if the circumstances warrant it. This is one of the ways a grand theft attorney in Los Angeles can assist you in your case, potentially saving you from a lengthy prison sentence.

Penalties For Grand Theft In Los Angeles

If you are charged with grand theft in Los Angeles, the penalties you face will depend on the nature and severity of the crime.

For a misdemeanor crime charge of grand theft, you could be sentenced to up to one year in jail, as well as significant fines.

However, if you are charged with felony grand theft, the penalties can be much more severe. If convicted, you may face a prison sentence of up to three years, as well as increased fines, felony probation, and a conviction on your record as a felon.

It’s important to note that if you have a prior conviction for grand theft, you may face even steeper penalties for a subsequent offense.

In addition, the value of the stolen item can also impact the severity of the sentence. For example, stealing an item valued at over $65,000 could lead to an additional year in prison, while stealing an item valued at over $32,000,000 could lead to a sentence of up to four years in prison.

    My family had an urgent matter late on a Friday night. Cyrus took our call at 10p, listened to our situation, and answered all our questions. He was thorough in his explanations and addressed our concerns. What we appreciated the most was that he was not pushy and walked us through different approaches for our situation. We have not needed legal representation yet, but with Cyrus’ flexibility, transparency, and straight forwardness, we would highly recommend him.
