Penalties for Theft Convictions
Tennessee recognizes theft as the intent to deprive the owner of their property and exercise control without the owner’s consent. Penalties associated with theft correspond with the value of the property taken, the offender’s criminal history, and the extenuating circumstances of the arrest and affected parties.
Penalties for theft include:
- Property valued under $500: Up to 11 months of incarceration and a $2,500 fine
- Property valued between $500 and $1,000: Between 1 and 6 years of incarceration and a $3,000 fine
- Property valued between $1,000 and $10,000: Between 2 and 12 years of incarceration and a $5,000 fine
- Property valued between $10,000 and $60,000: Between 3 and 15 years of incarceration and a $10,000 fine
- Property valued over $60,000: Between 8 and 30 years of incarceration and a $25,000 fine

Defending against Theft & Property Crimes
There are numerous property crime defenses that our attorneys can explore. When clients choose to work with our theft defense lawyers in Clarksville, we take the time to hear their side of the story before crafting a tailored defense strategy. We examine whether you had an honest claim to the property, if you believed that you had the right to control the property, or if you acted with the sincere belief that the owner would have consented to your control. No two cases are the same, and you deserve to work with a criminal defense team that addresses the root of the situation to advocate for your future.
