    Answered . The charge is also known as grand theft. It is a 3rd degree felony punishable by up to 5 years in prison or 5 years probation and a $5,000.00 fine. Your friend will likely receive a bond.

    Answered . The defendant needs to hire a criminal defense attorney ASAP to represent them and defend the charges. There has to be some basis for the charge (even if inaccurate). An attorney will defend and review the case, make a motion for bond reduction/modification if necessary. Get counsel.

    I am trying to give you a general answer to your question. We do not have an attorney-client relationship by this... more

    Answered . I know from experience that when someone uses the word "charge" or "charged" that person really means arrested.

    If in fact that is the case here, the local prosecutor's office ("the state") may not actually charge the person who was arrested if the person "wasn't there." The reason for not charging the person (filing an "Information") is that the state determined it could not prove beyond a reasonable doubt (the amount of proof needed in criminal court) the charge(s) for which the person (the defendant) was arrested.

    Keep in mind, however, that one need not go inside the dwelling (home), structure (building), or conveyance (vehicle) to be charged with any degree of theft.

    Whether or not the person has a criminal record or to what degree the past charges, the person you know here should look forward to a bond. The monetary amount depends on several factors, with a big one being past involvement in the criminal justice system.

    Answered . I Agree with my colleagues, grand theft is a third degree felony, punishable by p to five years in Prison. They will have a bond, bless they previously failed to appear on this case. The amount of nod will depend upon their prior record,, prior failures to appear, etc.

    Answered . 812.014 is the Florida Statute under which he is charged (which deals with theft crimes), "larc" is likely short for larceny, degree T is unknown to me, although it would appear to be third degree since the amount is between $300.00 and $20,000.00. They will likely have a bond, the exact amount will depend on many factors.
