Formidable Criminal Defense Lawyer Representing Greenville Clients Facing Grand Larceny Charges
Grand larceny is the legal term for the theft of items or services valuing more than $2,000. There are two degrees of severity for grand larceny, though both are considered felonies. Theft valuing between $2,000 and $10,000 is a second-degree felony, punishable by up to five years in prison and/or a fine determined by the court. Theft of property totaling more than $10,000 results in a felony charge punishable by up to 10 years in prison and/or a fine determined by the court.
Burden of Proof for Grand Larceny
In order to be convicted of grand larceny, the prosecuting team must prove that you did in fact take property belonging to someone else and that you intended to permanently deprive them of it. This means you had no intention of returning the property and you did not ask if you could take it.
Don’t Fight This Charge By Yourself
When facing criminal charges, it’s never a good idea to represent yourself. Your chances of staying out of jail and avoiding paying expensive fines are greatly increased by the mere presence of a criminal defense attorney. Richard Warder has been representing clients facing grand larceny charges for over 40 years and knows the ins and outs of the process.
