Penalties for Shoplifting and Larceny Charges
The penalties you face will vary depending on the value of the property allegedly stolen. The higher the value, the harsher the penalties you face.
In both Connecticut and New York, you could be charged with a felony larceny offense if the property was worth more than $1,000. For offenses involving property worth less than $1,000, larceny is a misdemeanor offense. Whether you are convicted of a felony or misdemeanor larceny offense, you could face jail time, fines and a criminal record.
