Consequences for Theft Crime Convictions

The penalties you could face for each crime vary heavily depending on the nature of the alleged crime, whether anyone was harmed, and if you have a criminal history. Although we cannot predict the exact penalties given by a judge if a conviction is reached, we can give you an idea of what to expect.

In Tennessee, theft crimes are typically charged by the value of the item stolen, as follows:

  • $500 or less: Class A misdemeanor with up to $2,500 in fines and up to one year in jail
  • $500-$1,000: Class E Felony with up to $3,000 in fines and 1-6 years in prison
  • $1,000-$10,000: Class D Felony with up to $5,000 in fines and 2-12 years in prison
  • $10,000-$60,000: Class C Felony with up to $10,000 in fines and 3-15 years in prison
  • $60,000+: Class B Felony with up to $25,000 in fines and 8-30 years in prison

Do I Really Need a Lawyer?

You may not think representation is necessary if the alleged stolen property was something small. Although the charges may be less severe for something of minimal value, this does not mean that you will not face prosecution. The authorities and prosecutors assigned to your case will not just let the theft go because the item was not incredibly valuable. Even if you are not worried about fines or potential jail time, the mark on your criminal record will follow you the rest of your life.

Fortunately, the Murfreesboro theft lawyer at the Office of Attorney Michael Auffinger can provide you with aggressive defense. Whenever possible, we strive to reduce the charges against you and minimize the penalties.
