Understanding Felony & Misdemeanor Theft Crimes
Generally, any crime where violence or the threat of violence is used will result in a felony charge. Furthermore, if a weapon is used in the theft the charges can be enhanced. The theft of certain types of property, such as a car, can also lead to felony charges. A felony charge is a serious issue and you should get legal representation from a Minot theft crimes attorney immediately after arrest.
Small thefts, committed without violence or the threat of violence, are typically categorized as misdemeanors. However, a misdemeanor charge should not be taken lightly and a misdemeanor conviction can come with significant monetary penalties and even jail time.
