In California, theft is defined as the unlawful taking of someone else's property. When the property stolen is valued at more than $950, then the theft is considered “grand theft.” Not only will a conviction result in jail or prison time, but also a permanent mark on your criminal record that can have substantial professional and personal repercussions.

At Wilfert Law, PC, we provide high-quality and aggressive legal representation to all those who have been charged with a criminal offense. Everyone deserves the best legal defense possible, and our Ventura criminal defense lawyers are prepared to fight for you.

Grand Theft Penalties

Grand theft in California is a “wobbler,” meaning that the prosecution may elect to charge you with either misdemeanor or felony grand theft. The decision to file charges for misdemeanor or felony grand theft will be based on the circumstances of the case and the defendant's criminal history.

If convicted of misdemeanor grand theft, it is punishable by a maximum jail sentence of one year. If convicted of felony grand theft, it results in a maximum jail sentence of three years.
