LA RS 1467. Theft

SUBPART C. BY MISAPPROPRIATION WITHOUT VIOLENCE

A. Theft is the misappropriation or taking of anything of value which belongs to another, either without the consent of the other to the misappropriation or taking, or by means of fraudulent conduct, practices, or representations. An intent to deprive the other permanently of whatever may be the subject of the misappropriation or taking is essential.

B.(1) Whoever commits the crime of theft when the misappropriation or taking amounts to a value of five hundred dollars or more shall be imprisoned, with or without hard labor, for not more than ten years, or may be fined not more than three thousand dollars, or both.

(2) When the misappropriation or taking amounts to a value of three hundred dollars or more, but less than a value of five hundred dollars, the offender shall be imprisoned, with or without hard labor, for not more than two years, or may be fined not more than two thousand dollars, or both.

(3) When the misappropriation or taking amounts to less than a value of three hundred dollars, the offender shall be imprisoned for not more than six months, or may be fined not more than one thousand dollars, or both. If the offender in such cases has been convicted of theft two or more times previously, upon any subsequent conviction he shall be imprisoned, with or without hard labor, for not more than two years, or may be fined not more than two thousand dollars, or both.

C. When there has been a misappropriation or taking by a number of distinct acts of the offender, the aggregate of the amount of the misappropriations or taking shall determine the grade of the offense.

Lol! I can do a banishing and, if needed, an exorcism in the event that Joe refuses to return to his lair.

Wow, so the maximum sentence for stealing $301 would be two years hard labor and a two thousand dollar fine? I think the fine should be more like 100X verses 10X the amount of the crime. $2k is inconsequential to loosing two years of one's life. (and earnings) Heh, but I guess petty thieves couldn't afford much more.

Don't forget the "pot" itself which could be sold at a yard sale for $1.00..... that's another 50 each.

No, No, if they are smart, they would probably "recycle" the pot.... Imagine the profits with your own independent Salvation Army pot... Just travel from grocery store to grocery store. That has to beat holding a piece of cardboard at a busy intersection...
