Punishment & Sentencing for Theft Crimes

Theft crimes carry severe consequences if you stand convicted. In many instances, you can lose your job, be ordered to pay back restitution, and even serve jail time. The theft amount is largely dependent on the punishment you would receive. For example, theft of one million dollars would undoubtedly require a lengthy prison sentence versus property loss totaling a few hundred dollars. Additionally, the planning, sophistication, and length of the enterprise or scheme is also a consideration a court will consider prior to sentencing. Furthermore, a theft crime is an offense involving moral turpitude. Consequently, it will lead to adverse consequences to anyone holding a professional license.
