Consequences for Property Crimes in Illinois

Punishments for theft crimes vary depending on the dollar value of the property that was allegedly stolen and other circumstances in the case. Theft of property with a value of $500 or less (that was not taken from the person of another) is a Class A misdemeanor, punishable by a maximum fine of $2,500 and up to one year in county jail. Theft of property with a retail value of $300 or less (retail theft or shoplifting) is also a Class A Misdemeanor. If the property that was allegedly stolen was government property or was taken from a school or place of worship and was not taken from the person of another, a person may be charged with a Class 4 Felony, punishable by a maximum fine of $25,000 and one to three years in prison.

Theft of retail property valued at over $300, theft of property valued under $500 from a person, or any other theft of property valued at $500 to $10,000 is a Class 3 Felony, punishable by a maximum fine of $25,000 and two to five years in prison. More serious felony charges will apply for the theft of property valued at more than $10,000.
