Orange County Theft Lawyer

(Penal Code Sections 484-488)

The most common theft charge is Petty Theft (Penal Code Section 488); this can only be charged as a misdemeanor. It carries a maximum of 1 year in jail. Generally speaking if the item(s) stolen are $400.00 or less then the matter can be charged as a Petty Theft. Mr. Bruzzo has represented many persons accused of petty theft and it is very rare that a first time petty theft offender receives jail. On many occasions Mr. Bruzzo has managed to get the case reduced to an infraction (so it does not reflect as a conviction on the criminal record) or negotiated other dispositions to keep the client’s record clean. PLEASE NOTE THAT A PETTY THEFT VIOLATION WITH A PRIOR PETTY THEFT CONVICTION CAN CAUSE THE NEW CASE TO BE FILED AS A FELONY AND THE CLIENT

Grand Theft

(Penal Code Section 487)

A theft of item(s) of a value in excess of $400.00 can be charged as a felony and is known as Grand Theft (Penal Code Section 487); it can carry a maximum of up to three years in state prison. However a skillful attorney can keep a person convicted of even felony grand theft out of jail. Also, Grand Theft can be charged as a misdemeanor.
