Theft is defined as the illegal seizure of another person's property
without their consent. The penalties for theft are related to the actual
value of the items that were stolen and can be classified as either a
felony or a misdemeanor theft. The impact of a conviction can be extremely
serious, based upon the facts, the value of the item, the use of a weapon
or any other violent act in the commission of the crime. It is absolutely
