As defined by the Texas state penal code, theft is any act where an individual appropriates property unlawfully, thereby depriving the owner of that property. The consequences for a conviction of theft can range from fines to jail time, in addition to the possibility of becoming a felon for some more serious allegations of theft. These potential ramifications may leave you feeling overwhelmed and worried about your future. Experienced Houston theft lawyer Kyle Sampson, Attorney at Law, can provide you with critical advice in the face of theft allegations and help you develop an aggressive defense against the charges you are facing.

Possible Misdemeanor Theft Convictions

As a broadly defined statute that includes all acts of extortion, shoplifting, swindling, conversion, embezzlement, and receiving stolen property, there are also a broad range of sentences an individual may receive as a result of a theft conviction. Many theft convictions are classified as misdemeanors, which are defined below:

  • Class C Misdemeanor: Stealing property worth less $20 or less, $500 fine
  • Class B Misdemeanor: Stealing property worth $20- $500, 180 days in jail and a $2,000 fine
  • Class A Misdemeanor: Stealing property worth $500- $1,500, 1 year in jail and a $4,000 fine

Depending on the value of property or cash allegedly at stake, theft can be charged as a felony offense. As such, it can be critical to consult with an experienced theft attorney about the particulars of your case.
