It can happen to anyone. You are at the wrong place at the wrong time with property that doesn't belong to you. The police catch you and the next thing you know you are being charged with theft, which in legal language is often called "larceny". The penalties for stealing from others can be severe in Massachusetts, depending on how much money the item or items stolen are worth.
For example, if a person is caught with more than $1200 worth of goods that do not belong to them, the criminal offense charged becomes "grand larceny", a crime considered to be a "felony", which means it could result in prison time. Grand larceny has a maximum penalty of five years in state prison, a maximum fine of $25,000, or a county jail sentence of up to two and a half years. Even if the value of the object is under $1200, the associated penalties of a guilty verdict in a court of law can be a significant burden on the person charged with the crime. Any criminal conviction is a stain difficult to erase: a stain that could lead to a range of difficulties, from finding future employment to applying for educational opportunities to maintaining relationships with family and friends. Especially for an innocent person, this outcome could be disastrous.
