Larceny in Brockton is either Grand Larceny or Petit Larceny (pronounced petty).
Grand Larceny is theft exceeding $250. Petit or small Larceny is for values below $250. These statutes may have been established back when $250 seemed like a lot more money. Regardless, the figures still stand.
Grand Larceny carries a possible 5-year prison term and a $25,000 fine; a poor return on the $250 you are accused of stealing. It also carries the burden of a felony conviction that will follow you for the rest of your life.
Petit Larceny is only a misdemeanor, “only” being a misleading word. It could still carry a one-year jail term and fines. Worse, it will also follow you, making it difficult to find a job, get a scholarship, find housing, or obtain a loan.
