How Texas Defines Theft

Texas law defines theft as “unlawfully [appropriating] property with intent to deprive the owner of property.” This means, in other words, that theft is taking something without the owner’s permission and intending to keep or give it to someone else. 

Examples of Theft Crimes

Common examples of theft crime offenses in Texas include:

  • Shoplifting: Taking merchandise from a store without paying.
  • Burglary: Breaking into a building or structure intending to steal something.
  • Robbery: Using force, violence, or intimidation to take property.
  • Identity theft: Stealing personal information to fraudulently obtain goods and services.
  • Embezzlement: Stealing money or property entrusted to someone for safekeeping.
  • Auto theft: Taking a vehicle without the owner's permission, intending to keep it permanently.

    Not only did she handle my cases the way she said she would, the outcome of both cases was better than initially anticipated at the beginning! Ashley made the whole process a breeze and she actually cared about how my day was going and how my case was panning out. She is definitely the nicest most professional attorney I’ve ever consulted with and hired and if I’m ever in need of legal assistance again, I got her number saved and she’ll be the first one I’ll call!

    “She was very thorough with my case and fought hard to get me the best outcome.”
    I was having a hard time getting in touch with another lawyer and emailed Ashley and she responded very quickly and agreed to meet me the next day. She worked with me financially and was very affordable. She was very thorough with my case and fought hard to get me the best outcome. She was very easy to talk to and always answered any questions I had and worked around my schedule. I would absolutely recommend her to anyone needing help.
