Theft & Property
Fort Worth Theft Crimes Attorney – Protecting Your Rights.
Criminal Theft Defense in Fort Worth, Texas
“Theft Crimes” entail a broad variety of criminal offenses, all generally relating to taking another’s property or money. A theft case may be a misdemeanor or felony offense, depending on the dollar amount (or type of property) allegedly taken. As a general rule, the greater the dollar amount, the more serious the offense and the greater the possible punishment becomes. Penalties for theft crimes can be severe and may include: fines, prison or jail time, community service, probation, random drug and alcohol testing, theft counseling classes, repayment to the victim (restitution) and other potential penalties. A theft conviction on your record makes it extremely difficult to get a job or gain acceptance into college. Many employers, as a rule, simply refuse to hire anyone convicted of a theft crime, and many colleges and universities will not admit any person convicted of a theft crime. If you’ve been charged with a theft crime, the stakes are huge. Indeed, your future may depend upon a successful outcome.
Some Legal Differences between Theft, Robbery & Burglary
When the State of Texas alleges that force or the threat of force was used to commit the “theft,” the defendant may be charged with Robbery. If a person entered a building to commit the “theft,” they may be charged with Burglary, either Burglary of a Building or a Habitation. Entering a motor vehicle to commit a theft may result in a burglary of a motor vehicle charge. Given what’s at stake in these types of charges, it’s important that you seek out an experienced Fort Worth theft criminal defense lawyer who knows how to protect your rights every step of the way and is committed to obtaining the best result possible.
