What Is Felony Theft?

In Kentucky, any theft over $500 is considered as a felony offense.  There are instances where a lesser amount may also be considered a felony, for example if you use a forged name, use a weapon to steal money or break into a home to commit the theft. If you are charged with felony theft, often TBUT > $500, then you are generally charged with a Class D felony.  If the amount in question is over $10,000, you may be charged with a more serious Class C felony.  Class D felonies are punishable by 1-5 years in prison, in addition to substantial fines and restitution.  If you are charged with theft, or any other felony offense, IT IS A SERIOUS CRIME! Felony theft is outlined in KRS 514.010, et al. Relevant statutes and links follow:  KRS 514.0.030 Theft by unlawful taking or disposition -- Penalties., KRS 514.040 Theft by deception; KRS 514.050 Theft of property lost, mislaid, or delivered by mistake; KRS 514.060 Theft of services.; KRS 514.065 Possession, use, or transfer of device for theft of telecommunications services; KRS 514.070 Theft by failure to make required disposition of property; KRS 514.080 Theft by extortion; and KRS 514.090 Theft of labor already rendered.
