Understanding Theft Charges in Maryland

As defined under Maryland law, a theft crime is knowingly obtaining control over property without authorization, with the intention of depriving the owner of their property.

What Are the Penalties for Theft in Maryland?

The lowest form of offense for theft crimes involves being charged with a misdemeanor, which is reserved for petty theft crimes. The penalties worsen with the increase in the value of the stolen items or services.

The following dollar amounts result in various charges and penalties:

  • Less than $100 Stolen: Misdemeanor charge with possible imprisonment up to 90 days and/or fines up to $500.
  • Less than $1,000 Stolen: Misdemeanor charge with possible imprisonment of up to 18 months and/or fines up to $500.
  • $1,000 to $10,000 Stolen: Felony charge with possible imprisonment of up to 10 years and/or fines up to 10,000.
  • $10,000 to $100,000 Stolen: Felony charge with possible imprisonment up to 15 years and/or fines up to 15,000 dollars.
  • Over $100,000 Stolen: Felony charge with possible imprisonment of up to 25 years and/or fines up to $25,000.

Those accused of theft crimes will also be required to return or repay the owner with the full value of the stolen item. Also, if the offender has two or more prior theft-related convictions, they will likely receive harsher punishment for their offense. Theft crimes result in serious penalties that threaten your freedom and future. It is vital to contact a PG County theft crimes attorney immediately to obtain sound legal counsel.
