What are the differences in punishments for Theft Arrests and Convictions for stealing different values. For example, if I am arrested for stealing something valued at $125, what is the charge and theft penalty.
The following pertains only to Theft offenses as charged in Texas Criminal Penal Code Sec. 31.03.
If the value of items stolen is not apparent or difficult to ascertain, then Texas Criminal Penal Code Section 31.08 is used, which states (in part) that the value is the "the fair market value of the property."
