Types of larceny in Connecticut

On Behalf of | Feb 6, 2021 | Criminal Defense |

Generally, Connecticut categorizes types of theft, or larceny, based on the monetary value of the stolen items. Some types of larceny result in felony charges.

Review the types of felony larceny crimes in Connecticut and possible penalties for a conviction.

First-degree larceny

Connecticut classifies larceny as a Class B felony when the value of the stolen property exceeds $20,000. The state also imposes first-degree larceny charges for fraud against a community resulting in a loss of at least $2,000. A convicted person could receive one to 20 years in prison depending on the circumstances of his or her case.

Second-degree larceny

These charges apply to theft crimes in which:

  • The value of the stolen property is $10,000 or more
  • The defendant defrauded a community for $2,000 or less
  • The defendant stole property from the victim’s pocket, bag or person
  • The defendant stole utility or cable services causing an interruption during an emergency
  • The defendant defrauded or embezzled from a person who is blind, disabled or older than age 60

This conviction carries a minimum of one year and a maximum of 10 years in prison as a Class C felony.

Third-degree larceny

This crime is a Class D felony in Connecticut. Third-degree larceny may include theft of:

  • Property worth $2,000 or more
  • A motor vehicle worth less than $10,000
  • Public records
  • Trade secrets

A convicted person could receive up to five years in prison.

Connecticut categorizes other types of larceny crimes as misdemeanors. For example, fourth-degree larceny, which carries up to one year in prison, applies to theft of goods worth between $1,000 and $2,000.
