We always get people on here who are charged with theft under 5,000…it is nice to see the more serious offenders here!
First, do NOT plead guilty.
At least, don’t plead guilty until AFTER you talk with a lawyer.
Perhaps you can work out a plea bargain.
As for your question, what is the sentence.
Whoever told you its 2-10 is smoking something which is making them high, can I have some?
I will quote the exact wording of the criminal code for you, section 334:
Criminal Code, [R.S., 1985, c. C-46] >> 334. Punishment for theft
334. Except where otherwise provided by law, every one who commits theft
(a) is guilty of an indictable offence and liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding ten years, where the property stolen is a testamentary instrument or the value of what is stolen exceeds five thousand dollars; or
(b) is guilty
(I) of an indictable offence and is liable to imprisonment for a term not exceeding two years, or
(ii) of an offence punishable on summary conviction,
where the value of what is stolen does not exceed five thousand dollars.
So in other words, maximum of 10 years in prison.
Minimum? Probation I would imagine.
