Theft Exceptional Legal Representation

Theft Crime Lawyers in Fort Worth, TX

Understanding the Severity of Theft Crimes

Being arrested for theft can be an embarrassing and worrisome event in your life. Making a momentary error in judgment can lead to a criminal record and conviction and can lead to serious repercussions.

In the state of Texas, theft is a broad charge and can cover many different offenses such as shoplifting, buying or selling stolen property, general theft or writing bad checks. Charges can be misdemeanors or felonies, depending on the circumstances of the event. If you or a loved one is facing a theft charge, you should enlist the counsel of an experienced Fort Worth defense attorney as soon as possible to ensure your rights are protected.

Theft Charges and Penalties

To be charged with theft, police must prove intent, meaning that you knowingly took property belonging to another, without permission. They must also prove that you have or had possession of the stolen property.

Proof can be provided by witnesses, an accomplice, or a video recording. The seriousness of a theft charge and the possible punishments if convicted are directly proportional to the value of the stolen property.

Charges can range from a Class C misdemeanor to a first-degree felony, and punishment can range from a small fine of $500 or less up to 99 years in prison and a $10,000 fine. If you have a previous theft conviction, charges can automatically become more severe, or if certain property is stolen (such as firearms), law requires mandatory felony charges.
