Theft is a common crime that is prosecuted throughout Texas. Depending on the amount, penalties can range from a misdemeanor to a felony. Shoplifting is one of the most common forms of theft. To be arrested for a theft crime, you must have taken the property of another individual with no intent of returning it. Additionally, if you have received services (for example, construction work done on your house or another service that was agreed upon for payment) and refuse to pay, this may also be considered theft. It is important to hire an attorney who has handled several theft cases with favorable results.
