Union County Theft Lawyer
What is Grand Felony Larceny in Ohio?
Ohio distinguishes between petty theft and felony theft based on the value of the property allegedly stolen. The penalties for theft vary depending on the value of the items in questions, the means in which the property was stolen, and other circumstances. Ohio classifies theft offenses according to the value of the property or services stolen, which determines whether the offense is a petty theft with misdemeanor consequences or a felony with harsher sentencing.
