What are the Penalties for Theft Crimes in Louisiana?

The punishments you can face if you are convicted for theft can be severe, depending on the circumstances of your charge. A misdemeanor may lead to up to a year in jail, while a felony can have a prison sentence of over a year. You may also be required to pay high fines and restitution to the victim(s) that can sap all of your finances for years to come.

A conviction will go on your permanent criminal record, which can bar you from obtaining employment, loans, housing, or educational opportunities when an employer, agent, or other entity performs a background check.

You may also lose custody of your children or your immigration status may be in jeopardy. If your child is convicted as a minor, they may have to complete community service, pay fines, and face additional penalties as an adult if they are convicted for another offense.
