In the state of Oregon, certain theft crimes are automatically charged as felonies, without reference to the value of what was stolen. This is true of stolen firearms or explosives, stolen animals, and the knowing sale or purchase of stolen goods. Anything stolen during a riot or fire is also considered theft in the first degree. If you have been charged with theft of any kind, retaining a Portland theft crime attorney should be your first step. We have a proven track record of helping our clients through the legal system with confidence and skill.
The state of Oregon places theft crimes into three classifications. The most serious charge, theft in the first degree (Theft I), is a felony. Theft in the second or third degree is a misdemeanor. Generally speaking, the determining factor is the value of the property that was stolen.
