Defending Clients in South Florida Facing Petit Theft Charges

Theft crimes are categorized as grand theft or petit theft depending on the value and type of property stolen. In Florida, theft involving property valued at $300 or more is typically classified as grand theft, and theft of property valued at less than $300 is petit theft. Petit theft is often associated with shoplifting.

Petit Theft Penalties in Florida

Although petit theft is most often categorized as a misdemeanor offense, punishable by a maximum of 12 months in jail, it often qualifies for alternative sentencing to avoid imprisonment. However, there are circumstances which will result in petit theft being charged as a felony.

Petit theft is classified and punishable under Florida law as follows (although it is important to remember that specific penalties will vary on a case by case basis):

  • Petit theft of property valued at less than $100 - second degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to 60 days in jail and a fine of up to $500.
  • Petit theft of property valued at $100 to less than $300 - first degree misdemeanor, punishable by up to 12 months in jail and a fine of up to $1,000.
  • Felony petit theft (petty theft with 2 prior convictions) - third degree felony, punishable by up to 5 years in prison and a fine of up to $5,000.
