Have you, a friend, or a loved one been arrested and charged with a theft crime?
Theft is the act of taking another person’s property without their permission. Theft crimes include the following: shoplifting, auto theft, identity theft, robbery, burglary, embezzlement, welfare fraud, insurance fraud, theft by check, forgery and receiving stolen property.
In general, the punishment for a theft crime varies depending upon the value of the stolen property.
A conviction for theft could result in the following consequences:
Theft of property or services with a value under $100 could result in a Class C Misdemeanor conviction.
Theft of property or services with a value of $100 or more but less than $750 could result in a Class B Misdemeanor conviction.
Theft of property or services with a value of $750 or more but less than $2,500 could result in a Class A Misdemeanor conviction.
Theft of property or services with a value of $2,500 or more but less than $30,000 could result in a State Jail Felony.
Theft of property or services with a value of $30,000 or more but less than $150,000 could result in a 3rd Degree Felony.
Theft of property or services with a value of $150,000 or more but less than $300,000 could result in a 2nd Degree Felony.
Theft of property or services with a value of more than $300,000 could result in a 1st Degree Felony.
Whether charged as a felony or a misdemeanor, theft is a serious criminal charge that carries devastating long-term consequences. In addition to jail time and fines, a theft conviction may permanently limit your ability to obtain gainful employment. Under Texas law, shoplifting and many other theft crimes are considered crimes of moral turpitude. A conviction for a crime against moral turpitude could result in limited employment opportunities, the deportation of an alien, and could result in your honesty and good name being held in question for the remainder of your life.
