What are the Penalties for Theft in Texas?

The penalties for theft crimes in Texas vary based on the value of the stolen property and other factors. It's crucial to have a legal team that can assess the specific details of your case and provide strategic guidance.

  • Classifications of Theft Offenses: Texas categorizes theft offenses based on the value of the stolen property. These classifications range from Class C misdemeanors for thefts valued at less than $100 to first-degree felonies for thefts exceeding $300,000.
  • Consequences of Conviction: A theft conviction can have long-lasting consequences, including fines, probation, and imprisonment. Additionally, a criminal record can impact your employment opportunities and personal relationships.

Defenses Against Theft Crime Charges

Mounting a successful defense against theft crime charges requires a nuanced understanding of the law and the ability to identify weaknesses in the prosecution's case. Peek Law Group leverages its experience and legal expertise to build robust defenses for our clients.

  • Lack of Intent: One common defense against theft charges is demonstrating a lack of intent to permanently deprive the owner of the property. Our attorneys thoroughly investigate your case's circumstances to uncover evidence supporting this defense.
  • Mistaken Identity: In some cases, individuals may be wrongly accused of theft due to mistaken identity. Peek Law Group diligently examines the evidence and works to establish a solid alibi or provide evidence proving your innocence.
  • Illegal Search and Seizure: If law enforcement obtained evidence through an illegal search and seizure, it may be possible to exclude it from your case. Our legal team is well-versed in Fourth Amendment protections and will rigorously challenge any violations of your constitutional rights.
