Penalties for Theft Crimes in Mississippi
Theft is defined as removing someone's property or assets from their possession without their permission and/or knowledge. There are many different ways that theft crimes can be committed, but the main element is the theft of assets, which is against the law no matter how you slice it. Typically, theft crimes are put into two main categories: misdemeanor and felony offenses.
This means that the crime will likely be charged based on the amount or value of the property which was allegedly taken. Depending on the circumstances and the amount of property which was involved, you could face time in jail or prison, restitution, legal fines, probation, and a permanent criminal record.
