Theft - Liberty Law
The most common theft crimes prosecuted in Utah include retail theft (shoplifting); receiving stolen property; theft of services; and theft by deception. Witnesses to an alleged theft can be unreliable and often misinterpret the situation. Even if the accusation is false, you can suffer severe consequences from a theft charge, including jail, fines, and probation.
The severity of your theft charge depends on the value of the property or services involved: Class B Misdemeanor Theft (theft valued at less than $500); Class A Misdemeanor Theft (theft valued at more than $500 but less than $1500); Third-Degree Felony Theft (theft valued at more than $1,500 but less than $5,000); Second-Degree Felony Theft (theft of valued at more than $5,000; also theft of a firearm or operable motor vehicle; and when the theft was committed with a dangerous weapon).
Even in cases where you are guilty of the charge, we can help you reduce fines, avoid jail, and greatly limit the consequences.
