What are the Penalties for Firearm Theft?

According to Texas Penal Code § 31.03(e)(4)(C), stealing a firearm is considered a state jail felony.

  • Texas gun crime charges can include the following penalties:
  • Between six months and two years in state jail
  • A $10,000 fine
  • Possible probation
  • Possible loss of rights to legally own or carry a firearm

Normally, a theft crime in the state of Texas is charged based on the value of property stolen at any given time. However, certain types of thefts are automatically escalated to higher levels if the property stolen is of a certain nature. Firearms are one such type of property.

Aggravating Factors

However, if a firearm is stolen and used as a deadly weapon during the theft (whether or not it was actually fired does not matter), your charges will automatically be upgraded to a third-degree felony. That means your sentence will range between two and ten years in prison and a fine of up to $10,000.

With so much on the line, it’s important to defend yourself and clear your name quickly and effectively. Don’t try to stand up for your rights—put a powerful attorney on your side who can fight for you with experience and knowledge of criminal law.
