Facing Grand Theft Charges? Call Today!
Theft crimes in the state of Texas are classified based on the value of
the property that was allegedly stolen. When the value of the property
exceeds $500, the charges reach a new classification, known as grand theft.
A grand theft conviction is automatically more severe, and carries heavier
jail sentences and larger fines if you are convicted.

Types of Grand Theft
In order for your charges to be considered grand theft, they must be valued
at $500 or more. As a result, many of the most common items stolen in
these cases are high-value, which means they carry serious penalties.
You could be facing grand theft charges for allegedly taking:
- A car, truck, or motorcycle
- Cellphones or other gadgets
- Musical instruments
Being found guilty of grand theft can have serious repercussions that will
impact your life for many years going forward. For
misdemeanor grand theft (items between $500 and $1,500), you could face up to a year
in jail and a maximum fine of $4,000. There are three different degrees of
felony grand theft, which could see you face a maximum prison sentence between
10 and 99 years, and a fine of up to $10,000.
