Theft crimes in Texas are generally charged based on the value of the property that is stolen. Most theft crimes are considered to be “petty theft” cases, and involve the theft of property valued at less than $500. However, at this $500 level, the crime increases in severity, becoming known as “grand larceny.” If you find yourself facing these charges, you should consult with a Hidalgo County criminal defense attorney who can help you fight back against your charges and avoid the harsh penalties that Texas law levies on those who have been convicted.

Grand larceny can vary between a misdemeanor and a felony depending on the circumstances of your charges, making it a “wobbler” crime. Petty theft upgrades to grand larceny at $500, but grand larceny remains a Class A misdemeanor until the property stolen reaches $1,500, at which point it becomes a state jail felony.
