INFORMATION ABOUT THEFT CHARGES

 

Theft Under Tennessee Law – Tennessee criminal statutes say that “a person commits theft of property if, with intent to deprive the owner of property, the person knowingly obtains or exercises control over the property without the owner’s effective consent.” (Tenn. Code. Ann. § 39-14-103.) Stated another way, you commit theft in Tennessee by unlawfully taking someone else’s property while having no intent to give it back to its owner.
