Theft can take many forms, but all involve stealing property, money, or the value of services. California law makes the distinction between petty theft and grand theft. The value threshold to push the crime from petty theft over to grand theft is $950, although the value for grand theft is $250 if the items stolen are livestock or farm products. If a car or weapon is stolen, it’s automatically considered to be grand theft, regardless of value.
Petty theft can be charged as a misdemeanor or, for first-time charges when the value is less than $50, even an infraction. A misdemeanor can result in a fine of up to $1,000, up to three years of probation, and/or up to six months in jail. Grand theft convictions can draw six months to three years in county jail or a state prison.
