Chandler Theft Crimes Lawyer

Theft A.R.S. § 13-1802 is a very broad crime in Arizona and can be charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the circumstances involved in the crime.

If the property or services stolen is valued under $1,000.00, theft may be charged as a class 1 misdemeanor. This class of theft is also known as “petty theft,” which includes shoplifting crimes where the property value is smaller.

Penalties for a first-time offender convicted of misdemeanor theft can include:

  • Restitution (repayment of the stolen property)
  • Fines
  • Probation
  • Jail time

Felony Theft

You can be charged with felony theft in Arizona if the value of the stolen property exceeds $1000.00. Felony theft crimes range from a class 6 felony up to a class 2, with a class 2 offense being the most serious. The classification will be made depending on the value of the property that was stolen.

  • Class 6 Felony Theft – Stolen property or services valued between $1,000-$2,000
  • Class 5 Felony Theft – Stolen property or services valued between $2,000-$3,000
  • Class 4 Felony Theft – Stolen property or services valued between $3,000-$4,000
  • Class 3 Felony Theft – Stolen property or services valued between $4,000-$24,999
  • Class 2 Felony Theft – Stolen property or services valued at $25,000 and above.

The Statute of Limitations for theft crimes in Arizona is (7) seven years. This means that someone could be charged with theft up to (7) seven years after the actual crime was committed.

Penalties for a first-time offender convicted of felony theft can include:

Class 6 Felony Theft
Probation or between four months and a maximum of 2 years in prison.
Class 5 Felony Theft
Probation or between six months and a maximum of 2.5 years in prison.
Class 4 Felony Theft
Probation or between 1 and a maximum of 3.75 years in prison.
Class 3 Felony Theft
Probation or between 2 and a maximum of 8.5 years in prison.
Class 2 Felony Theft
Probation or between 3 and a maximum of 12.5 years in prison.

If the dollar amount alleged exceeds $100,000.00. the person is not eligible for probation and must serve a prison sentence of between 3 and 12.5 years.

A felony theft conviction in Arizona can have life-long consequences. In addition to the possibility of going to prison, a felony theft conviction can affect your ability to get a job, rent housing, get a scholarship, get a professional license, and more.

I’m impressed. Without details about an ongoing situation, I want to say I am soooo happy I signed... up for the Attorney’s on Retainer program. I’ve been a client for some time, but never really expected to need them. Well, low and behold a very unhinged man made it a point to come straight at me and attack me, then claimed a different story. I am so happy that I already knew exactly who to call. I called the emergency line and Mr. Harris and Mr. Victor quickly got all over helping me. They jumped right in without hesitation. I highly recommend their program, not just for firearm owners that carry, but for anyone living in these crazy times where we might be forced to defend more
