A: Grand larceny under Oklahoma statutory law is a felony offense. It is generally defined as the theft of property or goods whose value is $1000 or more. In terms of felony offenses it’s a property crime which is generally viewed as something not quite as serious as many other felonies such as violent crimes, sexual crimes, other crimes against the person. The punishment range is tiered for grand larceny and depends upon the value of the property alleged to have been stolen. The statute breaks punishment ranges into three groups. The lowest level being property taken with a value between $1000 and $2500, then stepping up to property with a value from $2500-$15,000, and finally, property alleged to have been taken with a value of $15,000 or greater. If a defendant charged with grand larceny has absolutely no prior criminal arrest or conviction history, probation is a common place resolution of the charge. You need to contact a criminal defense attorney to give you more detailed explanation based upon the facts specific to your situation.
