Larceny Defense Attorneys

The attorneys at McCabe Coleman Ventosa & Patterson PLLC represent clients arrested for theft charges throughout Dutchess County, Ulster County, Putnam County, Orange County, Greene County, and Columbia County. The act of taking another person’s property without permission is known as theft, but in New York is referred to officially as “Larceny.” “Petit Larceny” is theft of property valued at less than $1,000 and is a Misdemeanor. Theft of property valued at $1,000 or more, or certain specified items such as credit cards, is a felony charge referred to as “Grand Larceny.” In New York, people who are accused of Larceny face serious penalties including incarceration, large fines, and probation. A Larceny conviction can linger like a dark cloud over a person, affecting job searches and personal relationships even after a person has “paid their debt.”
