Fort Myers Petit Theft Defense Attorney

Defending Your Freedom & Rights

Petit theft and grand theft are defined in terms of the value of property stolen. If the property was worth less than $300 it is considered petty theft. For theft crimes above the value of $300 it is considered grand theft. Grand theft is usually charged as a felony while petty theft is considered a misdemeanor. There are, of course, exceptions to both of these such as in the case of having prior petit theft convictions.
