Texas Laws Regarding Purchasing or Receiving Stolen Property

Under Texas law, theft means taking someone else’s property without their permission with the intent to deprive them of it. However, you can be charged with another form of theft under the Texas Penal Code Section 31.02 if you purchase or receive stolen property. Many scenarios involve this type of offense, including those pertaining to pawn shop owners as well as consumers.

It is not a necessary element of this theft crime for you to have positively known that the property was stolen. The prosecution only needs to show that you should have known that it was stolen based on the circumstances. For instance, if you purchased an item from someone on the street or in the back of a van for a price much lower than market value, it can be considered that you should have known the item was stolen.

This offense is punished according to the value of the property that was stolen. Depending on the value, it can be charged as a Class C misdemeanor carrying a fine only of up to $500 all the way up to a first-degree felony punishable by 5 up to 99 years in prison and/or a fine of up to $10,000.
