Theft Crime Classifications & Penalties

In New York, theft is defined as taking property that is not rightfully yours with intent to deprive the owner of its possession. Theft, or larceny, can take several forms, including acquiring lost property, larceny by trick, issuing a bad check, obtaining property by false pretenses, and taking property by extortion.

Like most states, New York classifies theft offenses according to the value of the property involved. Lower-level offenses are referred to as “petit larceny,” or “petty theft.” Charged as a Class A misdemeanor, this crime involves the unlawful taking of property that is valued under $1,000. When the property is worth more than $1,000, the charges are elevated to “grand larceny,” which can be a Class E, D, C, or B felony.

The classifications and penalties for theft crimes in New York are as follows:

  • Petit larceny (up to $1,000) – A Class A misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in prison and a maximum fine of $1,000.
  • Grand larceny in the fourth degree ($1,000 - $3,000) – A Class E felony punishable by up to four years in prison and a maximum fine of $5,000.
  • Grand larceny in the third degree ($5,000 - $50,000) – A Class D felony punishable by up to seven years in prison and a maximum fine of $5,000.
  • Grand larceny in the second degree ($50,000 - $1,000,000) – A Class B felony punishable by up to 15 years in prison and a maximum fine of $15,000.
  • Grand larceny in the first degree ($1,000,000+) – A Class A felony punishable by up to 25 years in prison and a maximum fine of $30,000.
