Theft Crimes Attorney on Chandler
The laws in Arizona regarding theft crimes break the crime down into several different categories, each one being a class of felony. A theft crime might also be a white collar crime. It begins with class two felonies for anything being stolen that has a value of over twenty five thousand dollars and goes right on through to a class six felonies for things of lesser value. In the definition of the law, the lower the number on the felony, the more severe it is. For example a class two felony, for a first time offender is sentenced by what is called the presumptive provision and this a five year prison term. The presumptive provision for a class six felony is one year in prison. Additionally, having a felony on your record will have a severely negative impact on your job opportunities in the future.
