Hi. I was wondering how much money someone would have to take for it to be considered a felony?
Class C Felony if:
The value of the property or services appropriated is five hundred dollars or more but less than twenty-five thousand dollars.
Maximum Penalty: imprisonment for up to 7 years, fines up to $5000.
Class A Misdemeanor if:
Under five hundred.
Maximum Penalty: up to 1 year in jail, and a fine of up to $1000.
But there are variables.
Section: 570.0030 Until December 31, 2016--Stealing--penalties. RSMO 570.030
In addition to the peaceful, the surreptitious taking by burglary, the violent taking by force or with a weapon, or the attempt to take so much as 1¢ would also be a felony.
I won't assume your user name has anything to do with the location you are asking about. In cases like this you need to specify what state you're talking about.
Also, in the future please post in the correct place. This area is not for legal questions.
