Grand Theft Lawyer in Santa Barbara

Grand theft, according to California Penal Code 487, is the stealing of property valued at more than $400, although the theft of a firearm or of something carried on the body of a person is considered grand theft, no matter what the value of the items taken. A grand theft crime, unlike a petty theft crime, will most often meet the criteria for a felony offense, but is termed a "wobbler" due to the prosecution's ability to charge as either a misdemeanor or a felony.
