Grand Larceny

Typically, grand larceny is when one intentionally steals, takes and carries away, leads away or drive away personal property or goods, with a value of $650, owned by another. It may also include withdrawing or transferring money in a financial institution to obtain intentionally money to which the person knows he/she is not entitled. Similar to petit larceny, but the main key here is the value of the property, and because of this value, the penalties are much harsher.

Penalties include:

  • If the value of property is valued at less than $3,500, a category C felony and a minimum 1 year and not more than 5 year prison sentence and possible fine not more than $10,000
  • if the value is $3,500 or more, a category B felony and a minimum 1 year and not more than 10 year maximum sentence and fine not more than $10,000
  • Restitution
  • If a firearm is stolen, then it is automatically a category B felony

Property will be valued at the highest value attributable to the property by any reasonable standard for purposes of determining the $650 threshold for petit larceny and restitution.

Defenses are available: Lack of intent to steal the property; it was your property; if there was not taking at all; and of course, any pretrial motions to suppress evidence due to any illegal search or seizure.
