It can be an embarrassing and scary experience being caught or accused of stealing. It can be outright infuriating and outrageous if you are falsely accused of theft or fraud. In our firm, whether you are guilty or not, we strongly believe that your constitutional rights need to be protected, and that means the State of Indiana (through its prosecutor and police) need to be able to prove your guilt beyond a reasonable doubt with powerful and persuasive evidence. If they cannot, then the charges should be dismissed or resolved by way of a reasonable plea. Individuals facing this situation should seek the help of a Board Certified Criminal Law Specialist* with experience in theft crimes. The state of Indiana has only given six attorneys the honor of becoming Board Certified Criminal Law Specialists*, and the office of The Criminal Defense Team of Baldwin Perry & Kamish, PC has five of them on the team. Don't trust something this important to just anyone, especially as crimes of dishonesty, such as theft and fraud, may negatively impact you for the rest of your life, including in your search for quality jobs.

Misdemeanor vs. Felony Theft

The least amount of charges you can face are known as level A misdemeanors, which have the potential of up to a year in jail and a maximum $5,000 fine. These include shoplifting items valued at less than $750.

If the amount stolen is between $750 and $50,000, the crime is considered a level 6 felony, with six months to three years in jail and a potential $10,000 penalty. Any property totaling more than $50,000 is a level 5 felony. This comes with a prison sentence of one to six years as well as the $10,000 fine.

Additionally, a variety of factors may elevate a simple theft charge into more serious felony charges, including:

  • What type of property was stolen (traffic signs, guns and property from hospitals, for example, can create more serious charges).
  • If the person accused of theft has a prior conviction for theft.

There are a variety of theft-type crimes that the Indiana legislature has put on the books, including (but not limited to)
