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.

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 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.

    Several years ago, I was contending with a serious legal issue. Out of the blue, I became aware that a corporation had obtained a large civil money judgment against me, in court, and on a case I was not aware of. When I became apprised of the judgment and the company's efforts to enforce the debt against me, I became angry and concerned. How would this case and judgment affect my financial future? Was there any way to fix this? I approached several other attorneys for assistance, but they all said the same thing: that because the judgment was over a year old (almost 2 years old, actually) it would be extremely difficult, if not impossible, to remove the judgment and to re-open the case. Given what other attorneys had told me about my case, I was not hopeful. But I decided to turn to and hire the Tabibnia Law Firm because I was aware of their strong reputation in both civil law matters and criminal defense cases. Mr. Tabibnia went out of his way to fight for me. To my great surprise, he convinced the court to set aside the judgment against me and to re-open the case. And months after getting the case re-opened, I was astonished when he then got the case completely dismissed! So, I went from having a large money judgment against me to getting the judgment removed and case dismissed in a matter of months. Throughout the process, I found Mr. Tabibnia to be honest, aggressive, competent and extremely fair with his fees. Most importantly, he kept me informed throughout the case. I cannot recommend the Tabibnia Law Firm highly enough.

    I am here, writing on the behalf of Mr. Cyrus Tabibnia. From the very first moment we formally introduced ourselves to one another, I felt nothing but sincerity and authenticity from this man. At that very moment I knew, that this was the person ideal to represent me and to do diligence. In which in fact he did do so. He was able to significantly get my DUI and Car Theft charges reduced from felonies to misdemeanors and with one case, completely dismissed. I was not only impressed and satisfied completely, but I was not suprised one bit with the outcome. I highly suggest this gentlemen if you are in deed seeking counsel from someone who legitimately cares, and who will go the extra mile and above and beyond for you.
