Theft Under $5000

In most jurisdictions, including Toronto, Canada, the law distinguishes between different types of offenses, such as theft, and sets out specific penalties for each offense. The decision to grant bail typically depends on various factors, including the nature and seriousness of the offense, the individual's criminal history, the likelihood of the person appearing in court, and the potential risk they pose to the community.

For theft under $5000.00, which is generally considered a relatively minor offense, there may be a possibility of obtaining bail. Bail allows a person accused of a crime to be released from custody while awaiting trial. However, the granting of bail is not guaranteed and is determined on a case-by-case basis.

When considering a bail application, the court will consider factors such as:

  1. Flight risk: Whether the accused is likely to flee the jurisdiction to avoid trial.

  2. Criminal history: Whether the accused has a previous criminal record or outstanding charges.

  3. Community safety: Whether the accused poses a risk to the community or potential witnesses.

  4. Ties to the community: Whether the accused has strong connections to the community, such as family, employment, or property.

  5. Likelihood of appearing in court: Whether the accused is likely to attend all court hearings as required.
