Year: 2021

Prior to 2013, general theft and theft of rental property were separate criminal offenses. In 2013, the general assembly amended the general theft offense to include theft of rental property.

The bill reestablishes the specific criminal offense for the theft of rental property. Theft of rental property is classified based on the value of the thing involved in the theft in the same manner as property in a general theft offense. In addition to any other sentence imposed or restitution ordered, the defendant must pay restitution for any lost revenue resulting from the deprivation of the rental property.
