Henrico VA Grand Larceny Defense Lawyer

Henrico VA Grand Larceny Defense LawyerGrand larceny – like petit larceny – is the unlawful taking of personal property from another. The difference is that grand larceny is a felony punishable by imprisonment in a state correctional facility for up to 20 years. Va. Code § 18.2-95 defines grand larceny as a larceny from the person of anything worth more than $5 of value or larceny not from the person of another of goods worth $1,000 or more or larceny of any firearm. The Henrico Commonwealth Attorney aggressively prosecutes these cases.
