55. It's a valuation, done to establish the felony nature of the crime.....
Let's say, for example...and this is COMPLETELY hypothetical....that one has a client charged with stealing a traffic sign.

Let's say the hypothetical DA charged this as a felony theft.

But let's say that the PD noted to the court that the DA had failed to establish the valuation, or worth of said stolen object.

One then would negate the felony charge. Hypothetically.
