A person is guilty of grand larceny in the third degree when he or she steals property and:

The next level is Grand Larceny in the Third Degree (N.Y.S. Penal Law 155.35), which is a class D felony. In order to be charged with this offense, it must be alleged that you stole property valued more than $3,000 or that you stole an ATM or the ATM’s contents. If convicted of Grand Larceny in the Third Degree you can face up seven years in upstate prison.
In addition to the potential for imprisonment that accompanies a conviction of grand larceny in the third degree, there are very serious collateral consequences as well. Criminal background checks have become routine among employers when considering hiring decisions. Theft convictions make receiving job offers extremely difficult and sometimes impossible in certain employment fields. Grand larceny in the third degree is also considered a crime of moral turpitude and can have serious immigration consequences for those that are not United States citizens, including possible deportation.
