Theft crimes in Texas are usually charged based on the type and value of property that is stolen. Most theft crimes, such as shoplifting, are considered to be “petty theft” cases due to their lower value. However, when the value of the property reaches a high amount, you will face felony theft charges.
Being sentenced for felony theft will carry much heavier penalties than petty theft, which means your life could be changed dramatically if you plead guilty or are convicted by a jury of your peers.
