Theft sounds simple but there are many, many acts that constitute theft, such as intentionally and without permission taking an item that belongs to another with the intent to permanently deprive the owner of possession, or taking or driving a vehicle without the owner’s consent. The sentence depends on which subsection of the offense applies. The sentence can be up to 20 years in prison and/or up to a $100,000 fine. The penalty may be more serious if there was a reasonably foreseeable risk of bodily harm. See https://www.revisor.mn.gov/statutes/?id=609.52.
The preceding was a summary of the law. It does not describe all of the elements of the crimes. Laws are also constantly changing. You need to contact a skilled Minnesota Theft Attorney to discuss the offenses in detail and with respect to your own particular case. Nothing in this description or anywhere on this site is legal advice.
