Petit larceny is one of the most commonly committed crimes in New York State. Generally, petit larceny is committed by young people who steal from retail stores. However, just because petit larceny is a frequently committed crime, does not mean that the consequences are not serious.
Petit larceny is a misdemeanor. If you are convicted of petit larceny, you can serve up to one year in jail and you will have a criminal record.
In many cases, our lawyers can get the petit larceny charges dismissed if you meet certain conditions (like community service). In other cases, we can get the petit larceny charges reduced to a non-criminal offense.
