What Is Grand Theft?
In Florida, this crime is a felony offense involving the intentional and unlawful taking of property of another that is valued at $300 or more. In order to prove the charge of Grand Theft, prosecutors must prove that the accused person knowingly and intentionally took the property of another person to keep for him or herself, whether temporarily or permanently.
Grand Theft can be either a first-, second-, or third-degree felony, depending on the value of the items stolen. Penalties may include prison, probation, fines, restitution, and a permanent criminal record.
