What is “Theft”?

According to Florida law, "A person commits theft if he or she knowingly obtains or uses, or endeavors to obtain or to use, the property of another with intent to, either temporarily or permanently: (a) deprive the other person of a right to the property or a benefit from the property, or (b) appropriate the property to his or her own use or to the use of any person not entitled to use the property." Based on the value of the property and the type of property stolen, the severity of a theft offense can range anywhere from a second degree misdemeanor to a first degree felony. Aggravating factors can significantly increase potential punishments. Penalties for a theft conviction can include long prison terms, jail time, probation, and restitution payments to the victim.
