If you have been charged with theft or other property crime, it may seem as if the police and prosecutors are holding all the cards. Like most states, California has eliminated many of the distinctions between theft charges. Theft offenses may be felonies or misdemeanors, depending upon the amount of property involved, but any conviction can still lead a future employer to conclude that you cannot be trusted with company money or property. Penalties for theft crimes range from making restitution to serving a prison sentence. Theft offenses involving bank fraud, securities and negotiable instruments may be prosecuted by federal as well as state authorities.
