NYC Grand Larceny Sentencing Guidelines Lawyers

A charge of grand larceny is reserved for severe thefts where the property stolen is worth over $1,000. The charge also applies if any of the property stolen includes a vehicle, firearm, or credit card or if stealing directly from another individual. Grand larceny is split into four different degrees ranging in severity. A past criminal history can also make the charge more serious. First-time offenders tend not to be sentenced to long prison terms, and some may be eligible for probation as an alternative sentence. If you’re a repeat offender with a prior felony conviction, under Penal Law Section 70.04, you’ll be subjected to minimum sentencing guidelines for the charge.

Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree

The lowest grand larceny charge is grand larceny in the fourth degree, and it is a Class E felony. You can be charged with grand larceny in the fourth degree if the value of the property is more than $1,000, but less than $3,000. You can also receive this charge if the property stolen is a credit or debit card, firearm, or vehicle under New York Penal Law Section 155.30. You can receive up to four years in prison if convicted, but there isn’t a mandatory minimum that must be imposed. If you’re a repeat offender, the law requires a minimum sentence of 1.5 years in prison. First-time offenders may be able to receive five years of probation, or a short jail term followed by post-release supervision through probation.

Grand Larceny in the Third Degree

Grand larceny in the third degree is a step higher and is a Class D felony under N.Y Penal Law Section 155.35. The value of the stolen property must be worth at least $3,000 or theft of an ATM or its contents. An individual convicted of grand larceny faces up to seven years in prison, but there isn’t a minimum requirement for first-time offenders. The sentence could be significantly less prison or jail time or probation in some cases. Repeat offenders must serve a minimum of two to four years in prison.

Grand Larceny in the Second Degree

N.Y Penal Law Section 155.42
If the amount of property stolen is worth at least $5,000 or if the circumstances involved extortion, the charge is grand larceny in the second degree. Someone convicted of grand larceny in the second degree faces up to 15 years in prison, with a mandatory minimum sentence of three to six years in prison for repeat offenders. First-time offenders can receive less time in prison and/or probation for a term of five years.

Grand Larceny in the First Degree

The highest charge of grand larceny is grand larceny in the first degree. Under N.Y Pen. Law Section 155.42, the property stolen must be worth at least $1 million. The charge carries a sentence of up to 25 years in prison. Grand larceny in the first degree is different from the others because there is a mandatory minimum sentence of one to three years for first-time offenders and four and a half to nine years in prison for predicate offenders.
