What is embezzlement? What are the long-term consequences of stealing something? Is larceny a felony or misdemeanor in South Carolina?
A conviction for larceny (unlawfully taking the property of someone) carries consequences regardless of how much the item was worth, or how much money you’ve been accused of taking.
That’s because “crimes of moral turpitude” or “dishonesty” carry a significant social stigma. The court system takes shoplifting in SC and larceny seriously. So should you.
