The theft of between $1,000 and $20,000 is a felony larceny that carries a five year maximum sentence. Very few people get the maximum because the prior record is a crucial factor in the sentence.

    The charge could be any number of them, organized fraud being the most likely, and probably a 3rd degree felony. Grand theft is another, but it is important to note that the Supreme Court and all of the district courts of appeal have ruled that organized fraud and grand theft charges based upon the same conduct violate double jeopardy principles. Get a private attorney on this case and tell him your side of the story, so that when the state brings charges, he is prepared with potential arguments.

    A theft offense can be very serious. While any theft in excess of $100 is a felony offense. The potential sentence for such an offense depend on the precise dollar amount alleged to have been stolen. The collateral consequences of a conviction can also be extremely significant and preclude a person from finding employment where background checks are performed.
