Examples of Theft Crime Charges in Michigan
In Michigan, the term most commonly used by the courts for theft is larceny. Broadly defined, theft occurs when one individual steals the property of another. Several different kinds of property can be involved in a theft crime, including bank notes, deeds, goods, money, receipts, public records, and even scrap metal.
There are two types of larceny misdemeanors in Michigan: theft of goods under $200 and second-degree larceny of goods valued between $200 and $1,000. Theft of goods valued over $1,000 will be prosecuted as a felony. When deciding how to prosecute a theft crime, the courts will look at all of the circumstances of the case and the value of the allegedly stolen property. These details will also determine the penalties you face in the event of a conviction.
Common theft crimes include:
- Auto theft
- Carjacking and joyriding
