Grand Theft Charges: Unlike burglary, theft does not have to involve entering into a home or establishment. Grand theft occurs when an individual knowingly and intentionally obtains or uses property of another without the victim's consent or knowledge of a value over $300.00. Theft may also be the act of depriving the victim the right to the property or the ability to benefit from the property. Grand theft is considered to be a third degree felony and may be punishable up to 5 years in prison.
