Theft Charges in Texas

Texas law separates theft crimes into several different categories. With some charges, you may be facing a fine with probation, while others could end in a prison sentence and a permanent mark on your criminal record.

Regardless of the penalties, a conviction can affect your long-term employment opportunities and several other aspects of your life. It is always worth the effort of defend yourself to keep your record clean.

In Texas, theft crimes are classified based on the value of the stolen items:

  • Class C misdemeanor – Less than $100 stolen. Fines up to $500.

  • Class B misdemeanor – More than $100 but less than $750 stolen. Fines up to $2,000 and/or up to 180 days in county jail.
  • Class A misdemeanor – More than $750 but less than $2,500 stolen. Fines up to $4,000 and/or up to 1 year in county jail
  • State jail felony – More than $2,500 but less than $30,000 stolen. Fines up to $10,000 and/or 180 days to 2 years in state prison.
  • Third-degree felony – More than $30,000 but less than $150,000 stolen. Fines up to $10,000 and/or 2 to 10 years in state prison.
  • Second-degree felony – More than $150,000 but less than $300,000 stolen. Fines up to $10,000 and/or 2 to 20 years in state prison.
  • First-degree felony – More than $300,000 stolen. Fines up to $10,000 and 5 to 99 years in state prison.

Keep in mind that your sentence could go beyond the standard rulings if you have a criminal record. Be sure to review your case with an attorney to understand the penalties you could face.
