The Maryland Theft Statute makes it a felony.
My response to your inquiry does not constitute legal advice and does not create an attorney/client relationship.
This is a felony charge. Any theft charge over $1,000 is a felony. Given the serious nature of the charge, make sure you retain an attorney to represent you. If you cannot afford a private attorney, you should contact the Public Defender as soon as possible and no later than 10 business days before the court date.

That's a felony. Perhaps you might negotiate a plea bargain for a misdemeanor, or perhaps the evidence might not sustain the felony. An experienced criminal defense attorney can help you evaluate defenses and mitigation. If you cannot afford to return one, then apply to the Public Defender for an appointed one.

That's a pretty serious felony, carrying a lot of potential jail time. You will need a lawyer, as this is not a charge you try and play lawyer with on your own. If you are asking whether it is possible to negotiate the charges down to a plea to a misdemeanor, then yes, all things are possible if the State is willing, and you've got a good lawyer who can make a good argument for that deal. Before you even consider that, however, you need a consultation with a lawyer in private to go over all the facts, and the lawyer needs to see all the evidence the State has against you. You may have defenses to this charge.
This is a felony. Consult a criminal defense attorney to discuss the specifics.
