Theft Crime Attorneys in Brazoria County
Trusted Advocacy from the Law Office of Steve O. Gonzalez
Theft offenses are based on three simple legal principles: you take control of property without its owners permission, you do so knowing you don’t have permission or authorization, and you do so with the intent of depriving the owner of that property. While it may seem like a simple concept, there are perhaps more varieties of theft than of any other type of offense on the books. Theft comes in all different shapes and sizes, and each different type of theft carries different penalties, severities, and factors that could influence the consequences if you’re convicted.
However, one thing that all types of theft offenses have in common is that they all carry harsh penalties if you’re convicted, and for that reason you need to make sure you how powerful and skilled advocacy on your side.

Gonzalez, we pride ourselves on being a team that is equipped and prepared to handle different types of theft accusations in county and state-level courts.

Another thing that theft crimes have in common is how they are classified—the more valuable the property stolen, the more severe the charges are. Someone who steals a small candy bar from their local convenience store will likely face significantly smaller misdemeanor charges, whereas someone who scams a large business out of millions of dollars with fraudulent claims will almost certainly be accused of a felony. Likewise, other aggravating factors such as the nature of what is stolen, breaking any other laws in the commission of a theft, or the use of a deadly weapon can all place significant enhancements on your charges and lead to even harsher penalties.
