Petit Larceny

A form of larceny—the stealing of another's personal property—in which the value of the property taken is generally less than $50.

At COMMON LAW, the penalty for the offense was whipping or some other CORPORAL PUNISHMENT. Under modern-day statutes, it is usually a fine, imprisonment, or both.
