Petit theft is typically a misdemeanor theft charge in the State of Florida. A second degree petit theft means the value of the items taken were less than 100 dollars whereas a first degree petit theft means the value is 100-299 dollars. Or you can get charged with a first degree theft if you have a prior petit theft conviction even if the amount is less than 100 dollars.
Since our earliest childhood memory, we have had it embedded into our skills that we should not steal. And yet, in some form or another, we have all stolen something of value at least once in our life. Is "petit theft" in our blood?
