What are the Penalties for Theft in Louisiana?
Theft can be a misdemeanor or felony crime, and thus sentences vary widely depending on the specifics of your case. Penalties are largely influenced by the value of the stolen property and any prior criminal record you may have. Grand theft in Louisiana occurs when the property taken is worth over $500. This offense is also known as larceny theft.
You could face several years in jail and fines in the thousands of dollars, or both, for larceny theft. Time in jail may or may not include hard labor. Other factors surrounding your case may increase sentencing, such as whether you committed a robbery, broke into a building, or attempted to conceal information with the intent to commit theft.
