Grand Theft and Petty Theft

Boise, Idaho, Area Defense Lawyer for Theft Crimes

In Idaho, a theft conviction can carry with it serious consequences. If you have been accused, it is critical that you fight hard to protect your rights. Contact me — Gerald Bublitz — at my Boise, Idaho, law office. I am a determined criminal defense lawyer, and I use my special operations military background and life experience as a prosecutor to go the distance for your defense.

I represent people facing theft charges related to a wide range of theft crimes in Idaho state courts, including embezzlement, extortion, automobile theft, shoplifting and receiving stolen goods. Depending on the amount allegedly stolen and certain other factors, you can be charged with grand theft or petty theft (petite theft):

  • Grand theft: Grand theft is charged when the value of the goods allegedly stolen is more than $1000. Theft of credits card or firearms are considered grand theft under Idaho law, no matter what the value.
  • Petty theft (petite theft): Petty theft is charged when a person is accused of theft, but the circumstances of the theft are not enough for grand theft to be charged.

Many people who have been accused of theft are worried about their criminal record. They worry that a criminal history can stop them from getting jobs or housing. The best way to protect your record is to work with a dedicated attorney — someone who fights hard to have charges dismissed or judgments withheld.

I want to talk to you, sort out what really happened, and work with you to find the best way through a bad situation. My goal, from the first time we sit down and talk, is to change the game so that we are in control and can see a way out.
