Property crime is a broad term defining a multitude of crimes against another’s possessions. Property crime often involves theft, robbery and burglary, but it can also encompass financial white collar crimes such as embezzlement or forgery and home invasion crimes, including breaking and entering, arson, and vandalism. The legal consequences for conviction of a property crime in Oklahoma depend upon the circumstances of the offense. In cases of theft or shoplifting, a defendant is charged with a misdemeanor if the stolen property is valued below $1,000. If the value of the merchandise or goods is $1,000 or greater, the theft is a felony punishable by up to five years in prison. Armed robbery is a violent felony punishable by a minimum sentence of five years in prison and a maximum sentence of life in prison.
