Types of Theft Crimes & Penalties

The state of Florida recognizes various types and degrees of theft crimes. Categories often depend on factors including the value and the type of property that was seized.

  • Conversion
  • Misappropriation

Under Florida law, petit theft involves property under $300 and generally counts as a second degree misdemeanor. Penalties for petit theft often include jail time, restitution, probation, and community service. If the defendant is a repeat offender, however, the court may order penalties for a first degree misdemeanor, including a one year prison sentence and up to $1,000 fines. Grand theft is often treated as a felony offense and may involve prison sentences of five to 25 years and fines ranging from $5,000 to $10,000.
