In Florida, the term "theft" is used to cover a broad spectrum of crimes. Theft charges can range anywhere from a misdemeanor petit theft to felony thefts involving minimum mandatory prison sentences. One factor in determining the level of an offense is the amount of money the goods alleged to be stolen are worth. However, no theft charge should be taken lightly. There is a provision in the Florida Statutes that allows for enhancement of certain misdemeanor thefts to felony thefts based on the prior record of the accused.
