The Basics of Grand Theft in California
There are two basic kinds of theft charges in California. The first is petty theft. Petty theft, as its name would indicate, is the charge for less serious theft offenses. Grand theft involves larger sums and much more serious consequences. Grand theft is often used as an alternative theory for other types of fraud charges.
Grand theft charges can come as a result of unlawfully taking property worth more than $950 or unlawfully taking, regardless of monetary value, a firearm, automobile, certain animals and property being carried by the victim. These charges can arise from general larceny crimes like shoplifting, or more complex white collar crimes like embezzlement and fraud charges that can include:
- Insurance fraud
- Workers' compensation insurance fraud
- Auto insurance fraud
- Health care fraud
- Medicare and Medi-Cal fraud
We have experience defending clients from grand theft charges. We take an aggressive, immediate action informed by our personally tailored strategic approach in each client's case.
