Johnson v. Commonwealth

Facts:

Defendant pled guilty to shoplifting of merchandise valued at less than $ 200, a third or subsequent offense.  The Circuit Court of Fairfax (Virginia) sentenced him to six years in prison, with four years and four months suspended, to be served consecutively to a sentence that he was already serving. Defendant appealed.  He argues that he did not knowingly and voluntarily plead guilty. He also argues the trial court erred in sentencing him to six years in prison (with four years and five months suspended) when the maximum penalty for the offense, a Class 6 felony, was five years. Finally, he argues the trial court abused its discretion in refusing to run any part of his sentence concurrently with the twenty-four months he was already serving on unrelated charges.

Larceny/Theft & Shoplifting Defense – Virginia Lawyers

Larceny (theft) is the taking of anything that has value without the consent of the owner. To be convicted of theft/larceny in Virginia, the taking must be coupled with the intent to permanently deprive the owner of the property. In Virginia, the law defines larceny as either grand larceny or petty larceny. The term grand larceny vs. petty larceny is used to identify the minimum threshold value of the item stolen.
