A: New York Penal Law 155.30 is Grand Larceny in the Fourth Degree. This crime is an "E" felony punishable by up to four years in prison. There are many subsections for this offense. Usually, however, the crime relates to a theft exceeding $1,000, but $3,000 or less. If you steal property from another person without force or you steal a credit card, for example, this crime would also apply. It is not clear if by "10" you mean "110." If so, this means that the crime is an attempted Grand Larceny. If this is the case, then the charge would be lowered to an "A" misdemeanor punishable by up to one year in jail. Consult with your attorney as to the specifics and how the facts of your case satisfy (or not) the elements of the alleged offense.
