Attorney Young represents individuals charged with Felony Theft.
Different Levels of Felony Theft:
There are 4 different ways to charge a person with Felony Theft. One possible charge is a Class 1 felony. This felony is also the most serious type of theft charge. More information about a Class 1 felony sentencing is available HERE. The offense can also be charged as a Class 2 (information HERE) as well as a Class 3 (information HERE). Finally, the offense can be charged as a Class 4 felony (information HERE).
What are the differences in the levels?
Each level has its own range of punishment should a person either plead guilty or be found guilty. The prosecutor must prove the case “beyond a reasonable doubt”, regardless of the level of how the offense is charged.
Changing the Level to Obtain a Lesser Sentence:
It is possible to have the level of felony lowered from one level to a different level. Also, changing the entire charge is possible.
What happens now at court?
