Georgia Theft Crimes
Theft crimes include shoplifting, petty theft, grand theft, carjacking, grand theft auto, identity theft, credit card theft, burglary, and robbery. How you are charged in a theft crime will be based on the amount or value of the goods stolen and other relevant facts. Under Georgia law, petty theft is considered to be items valued at below $300 while grand theft is stolen items valued above $300.
In any theft charge, whenever a weapon has been used to threaten and force a victim, the charges and consequences are much more serious. Our attorney has considerable experience in defending armed robbery, burglary, theft by taking, and financial transaction card theft.
