Fairfax Larceny Defense Lawyers

The Commonwealth of Virginia has the lowest threshold for felony larceny in the country. If you are caught stealing property with a total value of $200 or more, you will likely be facing a felony grand larceny charge. You can also be charged with grand larceny if you steal a firearm of any value or rob a person and take property valued at $5 or more. You can be charged with petit larceny if you have stolen property valued at less than $200. Petit larceny is typically charged as a misdemeanor offense.

A conviction for any larceny charge can have a significant impact on your future. Employment opportunities, your ability to buy a home or rent an apartment, and even your ability to get credit can all suffer as a result of a larceny conviction. In addition, if you are in the United States on a visa or green card, a larceny conviction can jeopardize your immigration status. Convictions for petit and grand larceny are not expungeable, which means that a conviction will stay on your criminal record for the rest of your life.

At the law firm of Surovell Isaacs & Levy PLC, we fight aggressively to see that our clients are not held accountable for a crime they did not commit. If you are facing grand larceny charges, we may be able to get the charge reduced to petit larceny if we can show that the price of an item was less than $200. We look at sale prices, employee pricing and any other available options.
