A Theft Charge Can Be More Serious Than You Think
Being accused of theft may not seem like a big deal, but that depends on the amount of goods stolen and if the theft involved any other crimes. With an alleged container theft, you may be facing charges involving breaking and entering, motor vehicle theft, robbery and even credit card fraud. If the container contained a lot of high-end merchandise, like pharmaceutical drugs, you may also be accused of drug charges.
The theft of motor vehicle can mean up to five years in jail. A container theft with more than $100,000 of merchandise can lead to up to a 30-year prison sentence. If you also face a gas theft charge, you could be sentenced to jail, owe fines and have your Florida driver’s license suspended.
