Theft Laws in Georgia

Georgia law defines theft as unlawfully taking or being in possession of the property of another with the intention of depriving the owner of that property, regardless of how the property was taken or appropriated. Theft may be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the value of the property, whether the defendant has prior convictions and other factors.

Our firm represents clients facing theft charges that include:

  • Shoplifting
  • Theft of services
  • Theft by deception
  • Theft by extortion
  • Identity theft

The value of the property is generally used to determine whether an individual is charged with a misdemeanor or felony. When the property is valued at $500 or less, the charge is usually a misdemeanor. Theft may be classified as a felony when the property is valued at more than $500, property is stolen from three stores within the same county in a three day period, or the theft involves breach of a fiduciary relationship, anhydrous ammonia, a gravesite, a motor vehicle, or a destructive device, such as a firearm or explosive.

The penalties for a conviction of a theft crime varies, depending on the type of theft, whether the individual is charged with a misdemeanor or felony, and any previous convictions. For misdemeanor theft charges, a conviction may result in a sentence of up to one year in jail and a fine. Felony theft convictions carry harsher penalties, including prison terms of between 1 and 10 years in prison and fines. Our Cumming theft crimes attorney will evaluate your situation to determine the best defense strategy for your case.
