In the video below theft defense attorney Sturm reveals how a shoplifting or other theft conviction can affect your job, your credit, your driver's license and more:

Police must prove intent to charge you with theft.  To establish this, police must  prove that you knowingly had, or are currently in possession of stolen property.  Proof can be provided by possession of the property, a witness, or a recording from a security camera. 

Whether the theft charge is a felony or misdemeanor theft charge depends on the value of the stolen property.  Charges can range from a Class C misdemeanor to a first-degree felony.  Charges can automatically become more severe for those with a previous theft conviction. And if firearms are stolen, Texas law requires mandatory felony charges be brought against the defendant.

 

 HOW A SKILLED THEFT ATTORNEY CAN HELP

Challenging Texas shoplifting and petit theft charges can be complex, particularly because these cases often involve hard evidence that places the offender at the scene, such as video surveillance. There may also be witnesses, including store employees or security personnel who will testify that you took an item.

Finally, the item itself may be used as evidence against you if it was found on your person or in your vehicle, etc. Fortunately, an experienced attorney can challenge all of the evidence against you, even if it seems as though you have no chance of avoiding a conviction. Witness testimony can be brought into question, as can the manner in which an arrest or search was conducted, or how evidence was processed by law enforcement.
