Grand Theft Charges in Temecula, CA

Assistance from a Temecula Criminal Defense Lawyer

At the Law Office of Nic Cocis, we handle various types of theft charges, including charges for grand theft. Grand theft offenses involve the unlawful taking of higher-value property. In its general definition, grand theft refers to the theft of money, real or person property, or labor that is valued at more than $950, according to California Penal Code §487(a). However, for certain grand theft offenses, the monetary threshold is set at $250, or there is no minimum value threshold at all.

  • To provide a glimpse of how varied California's grand theft laws are, here are a few items that can lead to grand theft charges when they are stolen:
  • A horse, mare, bovine animal, lamb, pig, etc.
  • Farm crops (value of more than $250)
  • Real estate unlawfully converted to one's own property (value of more $250 or more)
  • A dog (a value of more than $950)
  • Cargo (value of $950 or more)

Depending on the details of the offense, the penalties for a grand theft conviction can be months in jail or years in prison, in addition to expensive fines.

Our legal team works tirelessly on behalf of our clients to help them reduce their chances of conviction to the greatest extent possible.
