Understanding Texas Theft Laws

Under Texas law, theft is the act of taking property from another person with the intention of depriving that individual. While the property could be directly stolen from the rightful owner, theft could also be committed through indirect methods. For example, obtaining property that is known to be stolen is also classified as theft, even though it wasn't directly taken from the owner.

Our criminal defense lawyers in Brazoria County use many different defenses, including:

  • Lack of intent
  • The defendant is a minor
  • Defendant was under duress at the time of the act
  • A mistake of fact, such as when the property is found to not have been stolen

The Higher the Value, the Higher the Penalty

While it's not always the case, the penalties for theft often correlates with the value of the property stolen. For example, for property valued under $1,500, individuals are commonly charged with a misdemeanor. For property valued higher than $1,500, individuals can expect to be charged with a felony. Penalties can also be more severe depending on the occupation of the defendant and circumstances of the theft. Fines can range from under $500 to $10,000, with prison sentences ranging from under 5 years up to 99 years.
