Theft Crimes in Peachtree City

Facing Theft Crime Charges?

In the state of Georgia, the value of a property involved in a theft is used to determine whether the crime is a misdemeanor or a felony. Generally, any theft valued at $500 or less is considered a misdemeanor or “petty theft” while a theft crime valued at $500 or more is classified as a felony. There are instances, however, when a judge determines the classification of the theft depending on the circumstance surrounding the case. Whether you are being charged with petty or felony theft, your rights, freedom, and future are on the line. At Manning Peace, LLC, our Peachtree criminal defense lawyers have over 15 years of experience in helping clients with their theft-related charges.
