These types of charges should not be taken lightly, as they are misdemeanor and felony offenses. That means if you are convicted, you could face prison time and be subjected to high fines.

Is Theft a Felony or Misdemeanor in Washington?

Technically, theft isn't its own crime; it's an umbrella term for various offenses that involve taking another person's property or services. Depending on the circumstances, theft can be charged either as a misdemeanor or a felony.

The following are a few of the most common theft crimes:

  • Third-degree theft: A person commits this offense when they take property or services valued at $750 or less. This is a gross misdemeanor.
  • Second-degree theft: This occurs when a person steals property or services worth more than $750 but no more than $5,000. A person could also be charged if they take a public record. Second-degree theft is a class C felony.
  • First-degree theft: If a person takes property or services valued at more than $5,000, they could be charged with this offense. Additionally, this crime occurs when the item was directly taken from the owner regardless of its worth. This is a class B felony.
  • Second-degree robbery: This offense occurs when a person takes someone else's property by the use or threatened use of force or making the owner fear bodily injury. This is a class B felony.
  • First-degree robbery: A person commits this offense when they carry out a robbery and they have a deadly weapon on them, they display what is or may be a firearm or deadly weapon, or they cause injury to the property owner. This is a class A felony.
