Thieving Charges

The State has a LOT to prove if they are going to secure a conviction in any thieving charge, including cases involving theft of auto, theft of home, retail theft, theft of services, robbery, or burglary.

One area that is often overlooked is the value of the alleged stolen property. How is the State trying to prove the value beyond a reasonable doubt? Is it wholesale or retail value?
