Theft Charges Versus Larceny Charges
At The Blanch Law Firm, our theft defense attorney team understands that not all theft crimes are created equal, certainly not in the eyes of the New York Larceny Penal Code. Larceny involves personal property, and must be capable of being possessed and carried away in one form or another. Theft is more of an umbrella term that could mean identity theft, intellectual property theft and so forth. For example real estate, services and other “intangibles” cannot be involved in a larceny charge.
If you are charged with larceny (whether petit larceny such as shoplifting or grand larceny such as taking $3,000 for work not completed) you need a highly qualified theft defense attorney who understands theft charges, larceny charges and the consequences.
Felony vs. Misdemeanor
Theft crimes and larceny crimes can be charged as either a felony or misdemeanor depending upon the value of what was stolen. Article 190 of the New York Penal Code covers theft crimes, and lays out some serious penalties. A felony will have minimum prison time, meaning any conviction will lead to at least some time in prison, usually at least one year. Misdemeanor theft and misdemeanor larceny crimes can also carry jail time of the judge sees it as a necessary punishment.
