Pennsylvania Theft Law & Penalties

In Pennsylvania, a theft crime involves stealing another person or party’s movable property (tangible objects such as merchandise or cars) or immovable property (intangible objects such as electronic funds or real estate interest). The criminal penalties for theft are based on the value of the stolen property.

The following is a breakdown of the PA theft offenses and their penalties:

  • Third-degree misdemeanor theft – If the property taken is worth less than $50, then a defendant faces a jail sentence of up to one year and a maximum fine of $2,500.
  • Second-degree misdemeanor theft – If the property taken is worth between over $50 and less than $200, then a defendant faces a jail term of up to two years and a maximum fine of $5,000.
  • First-degree misdemeanor theft – If the property taken is worth more than $200, then a defendant faces a jail sentence of up to five years and a maximum fine of $10,000.
  • Third-degree felony theft – If the property is worth more than $2,000, or is a vehicle, then a defendant faces imprisonment for up to seven years and a maximum fine of $15,000.
  • Second-degree felony theft – If the property taken is a firearm or stolen during a disaster, then a defendant faces imprisonment for up to 10 years and a maximum fine of $25,000.
  • First-degree felony theft – If the property taken is a firearm and the receiver gains to profit from selling stolen items, then a defendant faces imprisonment for up to 20 years and a maximum fine of $25,000.

As you can see, the penalties for theft crimes can range from small fines to decades-long prison sentences. However, any theft crime conviction on your record will likely hamper your ability to find future employment — employers simply do not like taking risks on people with a history of theft.
