The Fourth Circuit has determined that Maryland's petty theft statute does not match the generic definition of a crime involving moral turpitude (CIMT).   Maryland’s theft statute does not distinguish between substantial and de minimis takings as required to qualify as a CIMT under Matter of Diaz-Lizarraga. The Court further concluded that the statute is indivisible, and as such, use of the modified categorical approach was inappropriate.
