In most jurisdictions, with no prior criminal charges, you would typically be eligible for a pre-trial diversion program. This is where you will perform some community service, take an anti-theft class, possibly pay a fine and if you complete the conditions of the program, the State will dismiss the charges. You should ask a Texas attorney to be sure, but most states have these programs.
Most Counties in Texas have pre-trial diversion programs that will allow you to get the case dismissed once you meet certain conditions. For instance, in Dallas County, you would have to complete an anti-theft class as well as 24 hours of community service. There is a $620 fee for this program in Dallas County.
