Minneapolis Theft Defense Lawyer & Attorney
Theft crimes in Minnesota range from stealing petty amounts of merchandise to thousands of dollars in bad checks. A theft conviction can result in jail or prison time, probation, monetary fines, community service and restitution payments.
Differences in Minnesota Theft Charges
A theft charge can be a misdemeanor, gross misdemeanor or a felony depending on the total dollar amount alleged to be stolen. In most cases, theft of $500.00 or less is a misdemeanor, theft of more than $500.00 but less than $1,000.00 is a gross misdemeanor and theft of more than $1,000.00 is a felony. There is also the potential for enhanced or increased punishment for a person with prior theft convictions.
