It is important that you have skilled representation on your side if you have been arrested and charged with a theft crime.
Felony theft crimes involve stealing items valued at more than $500. A Class E felony charge carrying penalties of up to 6 years in prison and $3,000 in fines will be imposed for stealing up to $1,000 in goods.
