Understanding Theft Charges in Dallas County and Denton County

Chapter 31 of the Texas Penal Code is the collection of statutes that govern most theft crimes in the state. According to Section 31.03 of the Penal Code, a person commits theft by appropriating property unlawfully. Appropriation of property is considered to be unlawful if:

  • The property is taken without the effective consent of the owner; or
  • The person took or accepted property that he or she knew or believed was stolen by someone else.

The law also provides that a theft crime is committed if a person intentionally fails or refuses to pay for services received from or rendered by another person.

Theft crimes in Texas can range greatly in their severity based on the nature and value of the property or services in question, as well as other factors. A theft of property valued at less than $100 is a Class C misdemeanor, punishable by a fine of up to $500. Stealing or appropriating property valued at over $300,000 is a first-degree felony, punishable by up to life in prison.
