Smith County Theft Crimes Lawyers
What Are Texas’ Theft Crime Charges & Penalties?
Theft is defined as the taking of another’s property with the intent to deprive them of it. You can even be charged with theft if you are in possession of someone else’s property without their consent. If you were charged with this crime, you need to take steps to protect yourself from a conviction as the consequences can include huge fines, jail time, and a permanent criminal record.
For property valued under $1,500, you could be charged with a misdemeanor, while theft of property valued higher than $1,500 could result in felony sentencing. Based on those amounts, your criminal sentencing could leave you facing years in prison and fines of up to $10,000. The good news is that you have options to protect yourself.
Possible defenses could include:
- Returning the property: In many cases, simply giving the undamaged property back will be enough to help you avoid a criminal conviction.
- Proving the property rightfully belonged to you: There are many situations where an original property owner gives their belongings away only to demand them back. Our firm may be able to help you prove that you did not take their property unlawfully and that it belongs to you.
