How Does Illinois Law Define “Theft”?

Posted on behalf of Donahue & Walsh, P.C. | March 11, 2021

Illinois law defines “theft” as an individual taking property from an owner, without their authorization. Theft may be carried out through “threat” or “deception”.

The punishment for theft in Illinois is determined by what property was stolen, and how the theft was carried out. Penalties vary from a Class A misdemeanor, to a Class X felony.

No matter if your theft offense is considered a felony or misdemeanor, a conviction will negatively impact your life. You will face time in prison, fines and a damaged reputation. This is why it is paramount you obtain experienced legal counsel to advocate for your rights.
