What are the Penalties in Florida for a Theft Crime?

Penalties will depend on the value of the stolen goods involved, and sometimes, the type of items involved. For instance, stealing emergency medical or law enforcement equipment of $300 or more could be punished as second degree grand theft. Generally speaking, however, theft penalties range as follows:

  • Petit theft of the second degree (less than $100): Up to 60 days in jail and a $500 fine.
  • Petit theft of the first degree (less than $300): Up to year in jail and a $1,000 fine
  • Grand theft of the third degree (less than $20,000): Up to 5 years in prison and a $5,000 fine
  • Grand theft of the second degree (less than $100,000): Up to 15 years in prison and a $10,000 fine
  • Grand theft of the first degree ($100,000 or more): Up to 30 years in prison and a $10,000 fine

Additionally, every single theft conviction in Florida can mean driver’s license suspension. Restitution could also be ordered.
