Understanding California's Theft Laws and Potential Consequences

According to state law, theft is defined as intentionally and unlawfully taking another party’s property. Theft crimes are classified based on the value of the stolen item.

If the stolen property is worth $950 or less, it is considered petty theft, which is a misdemeanor that carries a maximum six-month county jail sentence and a fine not exceeding $1,000. However, if the stolen property is worth $50 or less, the offense is an infraction, punishable by a maximum $250 fine.

Grand Theft in California

If the stolen property is worth more than $950, it is grand theft, which is a felony offense that carries a maximum three-year state prison term and a fine of up to $10,000.

Additionally, defendants can be subject to a civil lawsuit.
