  1. Theft over $500.00 but under $1000.00 is a class E felony under Tennessee law. If you have no prior felony convictions , you are a Range 1 offender. The punishment is one to two years in jail, but with no prior record you could get probation. Make sure you ask your lawyer about pre-trial and judical diversion. Good Luck.
