Theft Charges Are Usually Easy To Beat

As a criminal defense attorney in Houston since 1996, I can tell you a thing or two about theft offenses. First and foremost, if you’re accused of any form of theft offense, for any amount, do everything you can to fight the charge.

A Question of Your Character

Theft, A Crime of Moral Turpitude

Aside from a fine and confinement, the last thing you need is a theft conviction riding your criminal background. Theft is a considered a crime of moral turpitude. A theft related offense appearing on your background is often seen by others a being indicative of a lack of integrity and honesty on your part.

People Change

The person that you were when the crime occurred may not be the person you are today, or in the future, but your criminal record won’t reflect personality. It will reflect a thief. You can prevent such an unfortunate reality by either fighting the charge, or seeing if you have options to have the offense expunged or certified for non-disclosure if you’ve already suffered a conviction.

If you’ve yet to be charged, or if you were already arrested and charged with a theft offense in Houston, contact The Law Office of Emily Detoto today.
