Assmebly Bill 2372 Penal Code Section 487 amended This law changes the threshold from $400 to $950 to charge the crime of grand theft for stealing money, labor, real or personal property.
“Existing law generally provides that grand theft is theft when the money, labor, or real or personal property taken is of a value exceeding $400. This law increases the value threshold for committing grand theft from $400 to $950. Grand theft is considered a wobbler.
When the case is a wobbler, the District attorney has discretion in making a determination as to what degree a case should be charged. Some charges can be brought as felonies, while the same conduct could be brought as a misdemeanor. The amount of loss, injuries to the victim, past criminal conduct, or lack thereof, on behalf of the accused, are just some of the factors that would allow the district attorney to use discretion in making a charging determination in a particular case.”
