Theft Offenses in Philadelphia

Penalties for theft offenses range in severity depending on the circumstances of the crime and the value of the items involved. In Pennsylvania, there are two types of theft:

  • Movable (tangible items)
  • Immovable (intangible items)

Thefts are then graded according to the value of the stolen items and, to a lesser extent, the circumstances surrounding the theft. Thefts are broken down into misdemeanors and felonies, and then further broken down by degree-—ranging from third to first. Thefts involving items valued more than $2,000, firearms, or automobiles are considered felonies, regardless of value. Some theft offenses carry special grading relating to monetary values, such as retail theft. Other circumstances, such as prior convictions can also play a role in the severity of the penalty and the grading.

Depending on the value of the items involved and the circumstances of the case, clients charged with theft can face severe penalties if convicted. That is why it is critical to contact an experienced criminal defense attorney as soon as possible if you have been charged with theft. Brian M. Fishman has successfully defended clients in a wide variety of theft cases. He will use his experience in pre-trial investigation and trial preparation and execution to defend your rights in a court of law.
