Understanding Theft Charges in Texas

In Texas, theft is defined as unlawfully taking or appropriating property belonging to another person without their consent. The specific charges and penalties you may face depend on the property value involved and your case’s specific circumstances. Theft charges can range from misdemeanors to felonies, with penalties that include:

  • Fines of up to $10,000
  • Jail or prison sentences ranging from 180 days to 99 years
  • A permanent criminal record

Even a seemingly minor theft charge can have a significant impact on your life, which is why it’s crucial to have an experienced theft defense attorney on your side.

In Texas, a crime is considered theft if:

  • Property is deprived of the owner without the owner’s effective consent
  • The property is stolen and re-appropriated knowing it was stolen
  • The property is in the custody of law enforcement and is re-appropriated believing it was stolen by another
