Charged for a Theft Crime?

Aggressive & Experienced Defense in Olathe

There are many different ways in which a person could permanently deprive another individual of their rightful possession, or to use or benefit the owner's property or services. Examples include:

Although petty theft and shoplifting of property worth less than $1,000 are class A misdemeanors, theft of anything valued at more than $1,000 is a felony and will be severely punished under the nondrug sentencing grid and K.S.A. § 21-6611.

Penalties for Theft Crimes in Olathe

Kansas statute 21-5801 defines the different levels of theft. Theft of property valued at:

  • Less than $1,000: Class A misdemeanor – Fine of up to $2,500; up to one year in jail
  • At least $1,000 but less than $25,000: Severity level 9, nonperson felony; fine of up to $100,000; up to 17 months in prison
  • At least $25,000 but less than $100,000: Severity level 7, nonperson felony; fine of up to $100,000; up to 34 months in prison
