Common Theft Crimes

Generally speaking, theft is any action that deprives another person of their property without their permission. In Michigan, most theft crimes are covered under state larceny laws. When it comes to sentencing for theft crimes, the consequences for a misdemeanor or felony crime depend on the value of the stolen item, how it was allegedly taken, and if weapons were used in the act.

For example, the penalties for larceny (one of the most common theft crimes) in Michigan may include:

  • Less than $200 worth of property: Up to $500 in fines and 93 days in jail
  • $200-$1,000 in property: Up to $2,000 in fines and 1 year in jail
  • $1,000-$20,000 in property: Up to $10,000 in fines and 5 years in prison
  • $20,000 and up in property: Up to $15,000 and 10 years in prison

My goal is to help you get your charges reduced if not dropped entirely. I can use my former experience as a prosecutor and my extensive knowledge of the law to achieve this goal.
