Nevada Revised Statute Section 205.220: Grand Larceny

This law defines larceny as intentional stealing of another person’s property, items, or valuables that amounts at more than $650. Majority of the cases of grand larceny involve:

  • Using an ATM that is not yours to withdraw its money;
  • Stealing furniture or other articles from a hotel where you stayed;
  • Taking money or property from a store;
  • Stealing someone else’s farm animals.
  • Stealing items or properties that are below $650 is not grand larceny. These cases may be reduced to petit larceny or petty theft.

Defenses

A defense attorney can use different arguments to fight your grand larceny charges. Some of the defenses are:

  • The property or the item was yours. Stealing a property that is rightfully yours should not be called or even charged as larceny. If the prosecutor cannot prove that the alleged stolen item is not yours, then grand larceny charge would not stand at court and should be dismissed.
  • The property was not valuable enough. An experienced lawyer can show that the alleged stolen item was worth less than $250, the charges should be reduced to petty larceny which is a misdemeanor offense in Las Vegas.
  • You did not mean to steal. There are instances where shoppers did not really intend to steal. These scenarios should not be held the shoppers liable and prosecutors may allow negotiation to reduce larceny charges.
