In Florida, Theft cases can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on whether the offence is a defendant's first Theft offense, the value of the stolen property and what the stolen property is. For example, stolen property valued at less than $300 is generally the subject of a misdemeanor charge. But, if a person steals a motor vehicle, by statute that is a felony sometimes called "Grand Theft" or "Grand Theft Auto." In addition, Theft offenses do not just involve property--State Prosecutors can charge a person with a Theft offense if they have not paid for the professional services they have received from another or government power they have obtained without permission. A strong consideration in all Theft cases is that the consequence of a guilty plea or verdict can result in a two (2) year Driver's License Suspension.
