In California, PC § 484 and § 488 deal with "petty theft," the taking of property of another valued at $950 or less. PC § 487 addresses "grand theft," which is taking property not yours valued at over $950.
And grand theft auto, grand theft firearm, shoplifting, burglary, robbery, receiving stolen property, and other crimes are all theft crimes. Many of these charges are misdemeanors, but some are felonies. Heavy fines and potentially long jail/prison terms loom, and you cannot afford to be without the best possible representation.
