Theft Charges

A person commits theft of property when he or she, with the intent to deprive the owner of the property, knowingly obtains or exercises control over the property without the owner’s effective consent.

Theft of property in Tennessee ranges from a Class A misdemeanor, if the property is $500 or less up, up to a Class B felony if the value of the property is $60,000 or more.


This means that the punishment for this offense can range from fines and not more than one year in prison, on the lowest end, to not less than 8 years and not more than 30 years in prison and up to $25,000 in fines.
