Dallas Theft Crime Lawyers

Qualified Texas Theft Crime Attorneys

A theft crime is a criminal offense that is committed when a person takes another person’s property without permission.  Theft crimes are committed when people steal or unlawfully take other people’s material property. 

Frequently committed theft crimes include, but are not limited to:  shoplifting, carjacking, auto theft, petty theft, identity theft, robbery, burglary, petty larceny, grand larceny, forgery, embezzlement and receiving stolen property. 

Theft Crime Charges & Penalties

After people are suspected of unlawfully taking another person’s property, they will most likely be charged with a theft crime by Texas law enforcement.  The severity of people’s charges will always depend upon the value of the property they stole.  For example, a person that stole property valued below $500 will usually be charged with a misdemeanor, while a person that stole property valued over $500 will most likely be charged with a felony.  Law enforcement will also take other things into consideration before classifying a person’s theft crime charges.  They will enhance a person’s charges if he/she has a criminal record, has prior theft crime offenses listed on his/her criminal record or used a weapon while committing the theft crime.

People who are convicted of theft crimes in Texas may have to pay fines, spend time in jail and/or  be placed on probation.
