Types of Theft Crime Cases in Utah I Handle

As previously mentioned, the penalties for theft crimes can be incredibly severe. The Utah shoplifting penalties you, specifically, will face depend on a number of factors, including the value of the allegedly stolen property, the nature of the crime (for example, whether or not a weapon was allegedly used), if you have prior convictions, and more. In Utah, a third shoplift is a felony—even if the stolen item was a pack of gum.

At my firm, I provide aggressive legal representation for individuals accused of all types of theft crimes, including but not limited to:

  • Retail theft/shoplifting
  • Theft by deception/extortion
  • Larceny
  • Robbery
  • Armed robbery
  • Burglary
  • Receiving stolen goods
  • Motor vehicle theft
  • Theft of a firearm
  • Theft of services
  • Fraud
  • Financial card violations

If convicted of a Class B misdemeanor theft (theft of property/services that have a total value of less than $500), you could face up to six months in jail and up to $1,000 in fines. Penalties increase from there, depending on the exact charge. The penalties for second-degree felony theft in Utah (theft of property/services that have a value of more than $5,000; theft of a functional motor vehicle or firearm; or theft while armed with a dangerous weapon) include up to 15 years in prison and up to $10,000 in fines.
