  1. 3rd Grand theft is a violation of 812.014(2)(c)2. ($5,000 or more but less than $10,000). That is a 3rd degree felony. You should seek legal counsel immediately. The penalties for 3rd degree felonies in Florida can range from PTI (Pretrial Intervention) to prison term of up to five years.

    I am not admitted to practice in Florida.


  2. You should be looking at probation. But how do you know you are guilty?

  3. Probation is often seen under these circumstances, but you do face up to 10 years prison (5 on each) so it is best to get an attorney right away.
