A theft in Kentucky can be classified as either a misdemeanor or a felony, depending on the dollar value of the property taken or the type of property involved. Theft of property valued at under $500, which is the lowest level of theft, may result in a conviction of a Class A Misdemeanor which can carry up to 365 days in jail as well as a fine of no more than $500. Theft of property valued at over $500 but less than $10,000 is considered a Class D Felony, which can carry up to five years in prison and a substantial fine. Theft of property valued at over $10,000 is considered a Class C Felony and may carry up to ten years in prison and a substantial fine. If you are charged with a theft, it is a good idea to contact a lawyer for representation.
