  1. Most of us know that theft means stealing. What makes it first degree is the amount stolen. If it is alleged that over $1,500 was stolen, then the theft becomes first degree. First degree theft is a felony. If you are under the age of 18, then the prosecutor could file charges against you in juvenile court. There is not specific class of theft for minors. The significance of a minor committing a crime of theft is that it is handled in juvenile court.
