Larceny vs. Theft: What You Need to Know
Both larceny and theft refer to taking what does not belong to you. Larceny most often refers to a taking of physical property, while theft can refer to any variation of stealing from a person or entity. Virginia law describes larceny simply as ‘the crime of theft’ for which there are 3 distinct categories: Petit Larceny, Grand Larceny, and Shoplifting or Concealing. Petite Larceny is a misdemeanor offense in Virginia, while Grand Larceny is a felony offense.
North Carolina’s criminal statutes do not mention ‘theft’, but define larceny as taking the property of another without consent and without the intention of returning it, for which there is both a misdemeanor and a felony charge.
Affordable Theft and Larceny Bail Bonds
Regardless of the charges your loved one is facing, it may be possible to secure bail in order to bring them home while awaiting trial. Although the amount of bail required for release will vary by state and specific situation, the high cost of a loved one’s freedom can add even more stress to an already upsetting and tense situation. We make bail bonds affordable with fair rates and bail bonds payment plans that put affordable bail within reach of more families and individuals.
In Virginia and North Carolina, bail bondsmen usually charge between 10% and 15% of the total bond amount.
