Examples of Theft Crime Charges in Michigan

The broad term of theft encapsulates a wide variety of distinct crimes, even though the general definition refers to stealing someone else’s property without their knowledge or permission. The kind of property itself that might have been stolen ranges widely – deeds, money, vehicles, bank notes, jewelry, antiques, receipts, and public records can be stolen, but so can other goods that do not have obvious monetary value.

The two primary kinds of theft misdemeanors in Michigan are organized by monetary amounts: theft of objects which are valued at being under $200 in terms of cost, and theft of objects valued between $200 and $1,000. Any piece of property or good that is valued over $1,000 will not be charged as a misdemeanor but rather as a felony. In order to figure out the penalties for each theft crime, however, it is not always so simple. This is where it is important to bring in an experienced legal representative to present to the court whether the property was really worth its alleged value, or whether your actions must necessarily count as theft.

Categories of Theft

It is important to know just how many types of theft there could be, and which you have been accused of. Theft is not merely limited to robbing someone of money.

  • Vehicle theft
  • Shoplifting
  • Forging checks
