Theft of Used iPad Reduced to Misdemeanor

The offense of theft of property in Tennessee is graded based on the value of the stolen property. Stealing property valued at under $500 is a class A misdemeanor. Theft of property valued at $500 or more is a felony, with classifications from E ($500 to under $1,000), to D ($1,000 to under $10,000), to C ($10,000 to under $60,000), to B ($60,000 or over). In the recent case of State v. Webster, M2012-00713-CCA-R3-CD (Tenn.Crim.App. 6-5-2013), the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals found the evidence insufficient to support a felony conviction for theft of a used iPad, and reduced the conviction offense to a misdemeanor.
