What are the Penalties for Theft Crimes in Tennessee?
There are many different types of theft crimes that can be committed depending on the value of the items stolen and the circumstances under which they were stolen. You could face a range of serious penalties for different theft crime charges.
Misdemeanor Theft Crimes
Stealing less than $500 worth of goods is considered a Class A misdemeanor and will carry penalties of up to 1 year in jail and $2,500 in fines. It is important that you have skilled representation on your side if you have been arrested and charged with a theft crime.
Felony Theft Crimes
Felony theft crimes involve stealing items valued at more than $500. A Class E felony charge carrying penalties of up to 6 years in prison and $3,000 in fines will be imposed for stealing up to $1,000 in goods. If you are charged with stealing more than $60,000 in items or funds through embezzlement, then you will face Class B felony charges, which carry up to 30 years in prison and up to $25,000 in fines.
