Suffolk County larceny lawyer Jason Bassett releases a new article (https://jbassettlaw.com/what-is-the-difference-between-petit-and-grand-larceny-in-new-york/) discussing the differences between petit and grand larceny in New York. The lawyer mentions that in New York, theft-related crimes are usually referred to as larceny. Larceny charges can be difficult to navigate.

“Here are several things you should know when it comes to theft charges. Larceny crimes are classified as Petit or Grand. If convicted of either Petit or Grand Larceny, the penalties in NY are severe. This is why it is crucial to bring your case to an experienced larceny attorney,” says the Suffolk County larceny lawyer.

According to the New York Penal Law, Larceny refers to an allegation that a person is depriving another of their property. The definition of personal property includes anything that is valuable, such as money or possessions. Personal property can also include personal information, which can make it a little tricky to interpret larceny.

Attorney Jason Bassett mentions that "depriving" can refer to taking away property, but also to disposing of it. Even if the items are not kept, a person can still be charged for larceny.

Attorney Bassett states that a person can be charged with larceny without having to steal directly from someone else. Larceny can also include embezzlement or the obtaining of property by fraudulent means. It can also be considered theft to keep possession of the stolen property.

Attorney Basset also discusses the fact that petit larceny can be the simplest type of larceny and is where the value of the stolen goods is less than $1,000. You could be sentenced to up to one year in prison. Grand larceny, on the other hand, is a much more serious type of theft and can lead to up to 25 years imprisonment and large fines. Grand larceny has four levels, which can vary depending on the property stolen.

Lastly, the criminal defense attorney emphasizes the importance of having a skilled larceny attorney when facing charges of larceny. Having an experienced lawyer may be able to help the accused protect their freedom and receive a favorable outcome in the case.
