Theft Crime Charges in Maryland

In Maryland, various acts can be classified as theft crimes including concealing, possessing, and keeping the property of another party without having any intent to return it. In some cases, failure to return lost property that you found can lead to a theft charge. All theft crimes are punishable with jail time, fines, and reimbursement for stolen goods and services.

Misdemeanor Theft Penalties

  • Valued less than $100 – up to a 90 day sentence; up to $500 in fines.
  • Valued from $100 to $1,000 – up to an 18 month sentence; up to $500 fines.

Felony Theft Penalties

  • Valued from $1,000 to $10,000 – up to a 10 year sentence; up to $10,000 in fines.
  • Valued from $10,000 to $100,000 – up to a 15 year sentence; up to $15,000 in fines.
  • Valued at $100,000 or more – up to a 25 year sentence; up to $25,000 in fines.

Any charge is a serious matter and can have a wide range consequences upon conviction. The least severe offense alone can carry a jail sentence of up to 90 days, and penalties quickly increase depending on the value of goods or services in question. Regardless of severity, no case is beyond my scope.
