Theft is defined as unlawfully taking someone else's property without the intent of returning it to the rightful owner. Depending on the value of what was allegedly stolen, charges for theft can be brought as misdemeanors or felonies in Washington. Prior convictions can also play a role in how the charge is filed. If convicted of theft, even something that may seem minor, penalties can include sizeable fines and even significant time in jail.
