If you are facing petit theft charges you could be facing the following charges

  • Property stolen is less than $100
    This is a misdemeanor of the second degree, which means a fine of $500 and max sentencing of 60 days in prison
  • Property stolen is between $100-$750
    This is a misdemeanor of the first degree and would result in a fine of $1000 and max sentencing of 1 year in prison.
