Best Lawyers For Misdemeanor Theft Charges?

It might be because the crime is classed as a misdemeanor, not a felony.

A misdemeanor can be punished by up to one year in jail and/or fined at most $1,000 with no possibility of parole or probation. If you are found guilty of theft under a statute that is classified as a felony it will result in more serious penalties including prison time and heavy fines. In addition if it is for an amount over $2 000 you could even face life imprisonment with the option to have your sentence commuted after ten years upon release from prison so long as this does not interfere with your living arrangements outside of prison.
