Yuba City sits approximately 40 miles north of Sacramento. Though considerably smaller than some of the other communities in the Sacramento Valley, Yuba City has a few features that make it unique. It boasts one of the largest Sikh populations in the world outside of the state of Punjab in India, as well as a sizeable Muslim community.
The latest census, taken in 2010, showed a booming population growth of 76.6% from the previous ten years. However the estimated growth by 2014 was a mere 1.3%. As population growth has drastically reduced, commerce and trade cannot help but feel the impact of a dwindling economy.
These conditions can lead to an increase in theft as people feel the strain of trying to provide for their families. It can also be frustrating for many of the average workers to see stagnant wages while the economy continues to improve for others.
There are several different categories of theft under California law. The basic charge of theft can apply when property is taken by someone it does not belong to. Depending on the value of what was taken, it can be charged as a misdemeanor or a felony. From there, the charges vary based on the manner in which the property was taken.
Possible Theft Charges in California
- Petty Theft (Under $950)
- Grand Theft (Over $950)
- Robbery with a Weapon (this charge becomes more serious if a gun is involved)
These are just a few of the categories under which theft can be charged. Obviously, the higher the value of the property is, the stiffer the penalties become for the person convicted. The same is true with using a weapon, particularly a firearm.
If you have been charged with theft of any kind, you should not take it lightly. Even a conviction for petty theft can carry serious consequences, including jail time, probation, and fines of $1,000. A qualified attorney can help guide you through the system and minimize the possible outcomes, in some cases even finding diversion programs that get the charges dropped upon successful completion.
