Nevada’s Definition of Larceny from the Person

Las Vegas Criminal Defense Lawyer

According to NRS 205.270, a person commits larceny from the person when he or she - under circumstances that do not amount to robbery – with the intent to steal, takes someone else’s property without that person’s consent and that property is valued at $650 or more. If the property is valued at less than $650, then they would not be charged with grand larceny and would instead only be charged with misdemeanor theft.

Punishment if the Value of the Stolen Property Is Greater than $650 but Less than $3,500

If the value of the property is over $650 but less than $3,500, then the person would be charged with a category C felony, which carries a potential sentence of 1 to 5 years in the Nevada Department of Corrections and a fine of up to $10,000 (NRS 205.270.1(a)). This is a probationable offense.

Punishment if the Value of the Stolen Property Is Greater than $3500

If the value of the property is over $3,500, then the person would be charged with a category B felony, which carries a potential sentence of 1 to 10 years in the Nevada Department of Corrections and a fine of up to $10,000 (NRS 205.270.1(b)). This is also a probationable offense.

No Probation if Victim Has Any Infirmity Caused by Age or Other Physical Condition

Pursuant to NRS 205.270.3, a Court cannot give a person probation if the person that the property was taken from has any infirmity caused by age or other physical condition.
