Theft Law in Georgia

In Georgia, theft crimes are charged as either a misdemeanor or a felony, based on the monetary value of the property that was allegedly stolen, whether the defendant has any prior conviction, and other factors.

Georgia law identifies several different types of theft, including:

  • Theft by deception
  • Theft by shoplifting
  • Theft of services
  • Theft by extortion
  • Theft of lost or mislaid property

Theft is a misdemeanor for property valued at $500 or less with a penalty of up to one year in jail and a fine. The crime may be charged as a felony when the property is valued at more than $500, stolen from three different stores within a three-day period, and for specific types of theft. For example, theft involving a breach of a fiduciary relationship, theft from a gravesite, or theft of anhydrous ammonia, destructive devices, explosives, or firearms may result in a felony charge. Felony theft may result in 1 to 10 years in prison, plus fines.
