Can a Petty Theft in Florida Charge be Dropped?
Petty Theft in Florida is simply the act of taking the property of an individual or entity. The term “petty theft” implies that this particular crime is not serious. However, quite often, this is not the case. Petty theft can be charged as a misdemeanor, or felony, depending on the number of prior petty theft convictions. Therefore, it is imperative that a petty theft conviction is prevented or that these charges be dropped completely in order to avoid potential felony charges.
