Theft and armed robbery involve taking someone else property, but include a wide variety of criminal activities.
One can be charged with theft if suspected of taking a pack of gum as well as if they are suspected of stealing a car.
Because the severity of the crimes is so varied, the possible sentences also vary greatly. Crimes vary and a suspect could be charged with petit larceny or grand larceny.
Petit larceny is punishable by up to a $500 fine and six months in jail, while someone convicted of grand larceny may face years of prison time and steep fines. Someone convicted of armed robbery may face even a greater sentence still. If convicted, how much time you serve is oftentimes directly related with who you choose to represent you.
