Results-Driven Criminal Defense & DUI Attorneys Serving Maryland 24/7
Misdemeanor Theft


Although misdemeanor crimes are penalized less severely than felonies, people mistakenly believe that a misdemeanor charge is of no concern. While it is true that misdemeanors usually involve lesser crimes, the punishment for misdemeanor theft can be quite severe.

Depending on the specifics of the theft and any prior convictions that may or may not apply, a conviction on misdemeanor theft charges could result in:

  • Steep fines
  • Lengthy jail time
  • Community service
  • Probation
  • The inability to obtain certain types of jobs
  • Revocation of professional licenses
  • Mandatory counseling
  • A permanent mark on your record
  • And other criminal penalties which impact your quality of life

Maryland law defines misdemeanor theft as an act of moral turpitude and a misdemeanor theft conviction, even for a youthful lapse of judgment, can affect a person for the rest of their life. A misdemeanor theft conviction can affect the ability to attend some colleges, make it difficult to obtain loans, and can sully the person’s credibility for many, many years.
