Larceny in Virginia

In Virginia, the definition of larceny is the illegal taking of another person's property with the intention of permanently depriving them of it. Larceny is a criminal offense that encompasses various forms of theft and can involve stealing personal belongings, money, merchandise, or other valuable items.

Petit Larceny vs. Grand Larceny

In Virginia law, larceny is classified into two categories based on the value of the stolen property: grand larceny and petit larceny. The specific distinction between the two is determined by the monetary threshold set by the state.

  • Petit larceny applies to cases where the value of the stolen property is less than $1,000
  • Grand larceny applies to cases where the value of the stolen property is $1,000 or more.

Is Grand Larceny A Felony?

Grand larceny is considered a felony in Virginia and is treated as a more serious offense compared to petit larceny. The penalties for grand larceny can include imprisonment, fines, and other legal consequences while petit larceny carries less severe penalties.

How Many Years Can You Get For Grand Larceny?

Grand larceny or grand theft is a felony offense that may be punishable by imprisonment for up to 20 years (maximum). The punishment may vary depending on the circumstances of the case and the value of the property that was stolen.
