Larceny in Rhode Island is a serious charge. The offense includes a wide range of illegal activities, including:

  • Stealing money, goods, animals or personal property of another
  • Knowingly receiving stolen goods
  • Robbery, or stealing goods off of another's person

A larceny conviction carries harsh penalties, including possible jail or prison time and fines. The penalties for a criminal larceny conviction for stealing goods are based on the value of the goods stolen. The more valuable the property stolen, the more severe the punishment.

Other theft crimes include:
