What To Do If You've Been Arrested On Long Island For Grand Larceny
There are many different types of Grand Larcenies in New York State, and all of them are felony crimes, meaning they are potentially punishable by more than one year incarceration in state prison. The most basic type of Grand Larceny is essentially a Petit Larceny where the value of the property taken is over $1,000.
Other types of Grand Larceny charges could involve theft of a credit card, property taken from another person (pickpocketing), theft of firearms, theft of a motor vehicle, and more. The lowest level crime under this category is Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree, which is a Class E Felony, punishable by up to 1 1/3 – 4 years incarceration in state prison.
Other degrees include Grand Larceny in the Third Degree (theft of property valued at least $3,000, or theft from an automated teller machine), Grand Larceny in the Second Degree (theft of property valued at least $50,000, or theft by extortion), and Grand Larceny in the First Degree (theft of property valued at least $1 million).
If you’ve been charged with any level of Grand Larceny, please contact an experienced criminal defense attorney immediately to protect your rights. A good attorney will try to have you released on your recognizance, or to have bail set in an amount that you can afford. He will challenge the value of the property alleged taken to try to get the degree of Grand Larceny reduced at the outset. He will make sure any evidence or confessions which were obtained in violation of your constitutional rights are suppressed and not permitted at trial.
