What Happens if You’re Convicted of Felony Theft in Waukesha?

Wisconsin law is very clear when it comes to the penalties for felony theft. The court could fine you up to $25,000 and send you to prison for up to 10 years.

What Makes a Theft a Felony in Waukesha?

Whether a theft is considered a felony or a misdemeanor depends on the value of the property (or, in some cases, the type of the property).

Class I Felony Theft

Value: $2,501 to $5,000

Class H Felony Theft

Value: $5,001 to $10,000

Regardless of value, if the stolen property is a domestic animal or a firearm, you’re also looking at a Class H felony. Further, you’re automatically charged with a Class H felony if you take the property from:

  • Someone’s person
  • A corpse
  • A patient or resident of certain facilities
  • A vulnerable adult
  • A building that was destroyed or unoccupied because of a physical disaster, riot, bombing, or the proximity of battle

Also, if you take property that was stolen after a physical disaster, riot, bombing, or the proximity of battle required it to be removed from its building, you’re also facing a Class H felony.

Class G Felony Theft

Value: $10,000 or more
