Understanding Grand Theft

In Florida, someone may be charged with three degrees of grand theft. This can encompass various scenarios, including theft of valuable items, vehicles, medical equipment, and even law enforcement equipment. The degree to which someone is charged will depend on the value and type of stolen property involved in the case. 

Grand theft charges may include: 

  • Felony first-degree when the property stolen is valued at $100,000 or more
  • Felony second-degree when the property stolen is valued at $20,000 or more but less than $100,000
  • Felony third-degree when the property stolen is valued at $750 or more but less than $20,000

You may also be charged with grand theft for cases involving emergency medical equipment valued at $300 or more and/or law enforcement equipment valued at $300 or more. Similarly, grand theft felony charges may also be brought in cases that involve firearms, controlled substances, or other specially classified items (see Florida Statutes 812.014 Theft).

Penalties for Grand Theft in Florida

The consequences of a grand theft conviction in Florida can be severe and affect your life long after serving any sentence. Penalties are determined by the charge's degree and the theft's specific circumstances. They can range from substantial fines to prolonged periods of incarceration. 

Potential conviction penalties include: 

  • First-Degree Felony: A conviction can result in up to 30 years of prison, 30 years of probation, and up to $10,000 in fines.
  • Second-Degree Felony: This may carry a sentence of up to 15 years in prison, 15 years of probation, and fines reaching $10,000.
  • Third-Degree Felony: Those found guilty can face up to 5 years in prison, 5 years of probation, and up to $5,000 in fines.
