Theft by Check is a Crime
There are two offenses in the Texas Penal Code which can be used in dealing with hot checks: Theft (P.C. 31.03) and Theft of Service (P.C. 31.04). These offenses range from Class C Misdemeanor to Felony of the first degree, depending on the amount of the check. (1) Class C Misdemeanor: if the value of the check is less than $20.00; punishable by a fine not to exceed $500.00. (2) Class B Misdemeanor: if the value of the check is $20.00 or more but less than $500.00; punishable by a fine not to exceed $2,000.00 or 180 days in jail or both. (3) Class A Misdemeanor: if the value of the check is $500.00 or more but less than $1,500.00; punishable by a fine not to exceed $4,000.00 or 1 yr. in jail or both. (4) All checks that exceed $1,500.00 are Felonies and they are referred to the District Attorney's Office.
