Nassau County Grand Larceny
A Nassau County Grand Larceny Lawyer can tell you that Grand Larceny is a commonly committed crime, and is often seen in the context of Shoplifting. The crime of Grand Larceny involves the stealing of property that is worth more than $1,000. If the crime involves less than that dollar amount, it is considered Petit Larceny. If you have been accused of a theft crime including Grand Larceny, shoplifting, burglary or White collar crimes, speak with a Nassau County Grand Larceny Lawyer from our office. You could be facing serious legal consequences that include jail and large fines.
There are four degrees of Grand Larceny:
4th Degree Grand Larceny: If the property stolen is worth over $1,000., or is an item of religious worship, a public record or a firearm, this section will apply. It is considered an E felony.
3d Degree Grand Larceny: If the property stolen is worth $3,000. but it not more than $49,999.99, this section will apply, and is a D felony.
2d Degree Grand Larceny: If the property stolen is worth $50,000. but is not higher than $999,999., this section applies, and is a C felony.
1st Degree Grand Larceny: If the property stolen is worth #1,000,000., this section applies and is a B felony.
A Nassau County Grand Larceny Lawyer can explain that this crime is different from other theft crimes, because the dollar amounts of the property stolen are cumulative. If someone steals $1,000. worth of property every day from the same person for 50 days, they have committed Grand Larceny in the 2nd Degree. However if the defendant committed burglary, and stole $1,000. worth of articles from the same person over a period of 50 days, this person would be guilty of 50 counts of Burglary.
