Your Options Against a Larceny Charge in Virginia
Broadly speaking, if you are charged with petit larceny, you are facing a Class 1 misdemeanor charge. This could entail up to 1 year in jail and a $2,500 fine. If you face a grand larceny charge (pilfering $200 or more), you could be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony, and you could be looking at up to 20 years in prison.
The bottom line: much rests on the discretion of the judge or jury. A court has the power to decide whether you face a misdemeanor or felony charge. If this is a minor charge or a first-time offense, a court can decide on alternative penalties, such as a diversion program or probation sentence, which could get your charges dropped. A prosecutor even has the discretion to offer a larceny defendant a plea bargain.
