Theft is a very broad topic, which can refer to a wide range of crimes including writing bad checks, shoplifting, purse snatching, possessing stolen goods, stealing copper, stealing services, etc.
The degree of offense can range from a class C misdemeanor all the way to a first degree felony, depending on the value of what was stolen. Regardless of the degree of the charge, a theft conviction can have far-reaching and unforeseen consequences for you.

Even if you do not believe accepting a conviction for theft will affect you now, it is a conviction that will stay with you for the rest of your life. With a theft charge, it is imperative that you not just take the easy way out and pay a fine to simply “get it over with”.
