Theft Crimes

law book with balance In the state of Tennessee, theft crimes are graded as either misdemeanors or felonies depending on the value of the stolen items or services. Whether you have been charged with a theft crime or are a victim of theft, it is important to find representation that you trust. The faster you find the right representation, the more likely you are to get better results. When being charged with a theft crime, having to serve time in jail is very likely if the accused doesn’t act as quickly as possible. It is also important to act now if you are the victim of theft, or you risk losing the opportunity to press charges.

If the value of the stolen items or services amounts to more than $500, it is then considered a felony instead of a misdemeanor. A Class E felony in Tennessee can bring punishments including up to 6 years in prison and thousands of dollars in fines. Not only are those punishments hard to live with, but you will also have a felony on your personal record. Having a felony charge following you around can dramatically reduce your quality of life by possibly causing you to lose your current job, making it hard to find future employment and causing people to lose trust in you. This is why it is so important to have a lawyer who will do their best to get the law on your side.
