Q&A with State Attorney, 7th Judicial Circuit, R.J. Larizza

Q: Can you give us an update on some of the highlights of the recently concluded 2019 legislative session as pertains to criminal justice?
A: There were a number of changes enacted this session. First, there were changes to the grand theft/felony theft statute, which hasn’t been modified in decades. Previously, the threshold was $300 in stolen goods to be classified as grand theft. The legislature increased this to $750, to try to make it equivalent today to the old amount. The law does allow us to aggregate, so if we can prove that there is an ongoing theft ring of smaller thefts under the felony threshold, we can add them up to charge with grand theft.

Here I was, nestled in ultra comfy king-size bed feeling more like a posh apartment than a large tent. This wasn’t a movie set; instead, I was in rural Paint Bank, a tiny town comprising a general store, gas station, depot lodge, fishing cabins and a herd of buffalo. The as-yet-undiscovered hamlet offers distinctive lodging escapes and outdoor adventures.
