If you’ve been charged with felony theft, you need the help of a seasoned attorney – and you need that help now. In Arizona, grand theft is a serious crime, and one that will stay on your record for a lifetime. A conviction has severe financial implications, not only because you will hard time ever getting another job, but also because you may be liable for significant fines and restitution.
Types of Arizona Grand Theft Charges
In Arizona, grand theft charges can be brought when the value of the stolen property is more than $1,000, if a firearm was taken, or if an animal was taken for the purpose of animal fighting. Grand theft can be categorized as a class 2, 3, 4, 5, or 6 felony, depending on the value of the property alleged to have been taken. At the upper end is property valued at more than $25,000. If convicted of that class 2 felony, you could face up to 12-1/2 years in prison. That can bounce up to 35 years in prison if you’ve had two prior convictions. At the lower end of the spectrum, property or services with a value between $1,000 and $2,000 can bring up to two years in prison – or 5.75 years with two prior offenses.
