Though we have all heard the term larceny in popular crime dramas and movies, many do not know exactly what the term means. In general, larceny refers to any time a person intends to misappropriate the property of another and “wrongfully takes, obtains, or withholds such property from an owner thereof” (S 155.05).
Common forms and instances of larceny include:
Larceny charges carry a wide variety of possible penalties, which mostly depend on the type of larceny involved and the value of the property which was misappropriated.
Larceny penalties include:
In New York, a larceny charge may become grand larceny when the value of the stolen property exceeds $1,000. Additionally, the alleged offender must have the intent to permanently deprive another of the property in order for a charge to qualify as grand larceny. Depending on the value of the stolen item and other factors, grand larceny can be charged as either a felony or misdemeanor offense.
