Oklahoma Theft Crime Lawyer

Fight your theft charges with Atkins & Markoff!

Oklahoma Statutes Annotated §21-1701 defines theft - or "larceny" - as "the taking of personal property accomplished by fraud or stealth, and with the intent to deprive another thereof." Theft of property with a value of $500 or less is petit larceny punishable by a fine of $10 - $500 and a possible jail sentence of up to 6 months. Theft of property worth more than $500 or of any property directly from the person of another (robbery) is grand larceny and is charged as a felony. The penalty for grand larceny is a prison sentence of up to 5 years and a fine of up to $5,000.

At Atkins & Markoff, we defend against all theft-related criminal accusations, such as:

  • Petit theft
  • Grand theft
  • Robbery and armed robbery
  • Car theft / carjacking
  • Shoplifting
  • Burglary

Burglary Penalties

The crime of burglary is committed when an individual breaks and enters into a building with the intent of committing a theft crime or felony inside. If the offender breaks into a house or inhabited building; displays a deadly weapon; or uses false keys to break in, then he or she is guilty of first-degree burglary. This offense is a felony punishable by a prison sentence of 7 - 20 years. Second-degree burglary is committed in any other case that is definable as burglary and is punishable by two to seven years in prison.
