Amarillo Theft Defense Attorney

Types of Texas Theft Charges

In Texas, shoplifting falls under general theft/larceny law. Theft laws define how you are charged based on the value of the goods or services stolen. As an example, for items less than $50 you are charged with a Class C misdemeanor. For goods valued between $1,500 and $20,000, you will be charged with a state jail felony, and for anything stolen valued more than $200,000, you face a first-degree felony charge.

Quackenbush Law Firm defends all types of theft changes, including:

  • Shoplifting
  • Theft/larceny
  • Burglary of a building
  • Burglary of a habitation (residential burglary)
  • Burglary of a habitation with the intent to commit sexual assault
  • Robbery
  • Aggravated robbery

Burglary Charges in Texas

In Texas, burglary is defined as entering a property illegally with the intent to commit a crime. Punishments typically come with a $10k fine, but range from a state jail felony sentence of up to 180 days to a second-degree felony of up to 20 years to a first-degree felony charge of up to life.

For example, habitation with the intent commit theft is a second-degree felony charge while residential burglary with the intent to commit sexual assault is a first-degree felony charge.

Theft charges in Texas can vary widely. Some result in only fines while more serious allegations can lead to life in prison.
