Will I Go To Jail For A Theft Charge?

In Alaska, the value of the property determines the classification of the theft charge. Your theft charge can range from a misdemeanor fourth-degree theft to grand larceny. The classification will be:

  • Fourth degree for property valued under $50
  • Third degree for property valued between $50 and $500
  • Second degree for property valued between $500 and $25,000
  • First degree for property valued at more than $25,000

Embezzlement, shoplifting and credit card fraud are common types of theft.

Technologically Advanced Theft Has Other Penalties

Conviction for using an access device in theft can result in more severe penalties. A theft charge involving an access device is classified as a:

  • Class B felony for property or service valued at $25,000
  • Class C felony for property or services valued between $50 and $25,000
  • Class A misdemeanor for property or service valued at less than $50

Other than property value, there are additional factors that affect sentencing. Such as criminal history, surrounding circumstances and the strength of your defense. Our attorney has more than two decades of experience building solid defenses for those who face criminal charges.
