Re: Theft Over $1000 in Tennessee
this is the basic penalty guidelines:
how strictly that is enforced I have no idea. If you have not entered a plea yet, be sure to plead "not guilty" (if you don't, there is no reason in having a trial since you admitted guilt). Then ask for a lawyer.
|Class D felony
||Not less than two (2) years nor more than twelve (12) years in prison. In addition, the jury may assess a fine not to exceed five thousand dollars ($5,000), unless otherwise provided by statute
I am not an attorney and any advice is not to be construed as legal advice. You might even want to ignore my advice. Actually, there are plenty of real attorneys that you might want to ignore as well.
