Theft related crimes are categorized under Texas law as "crimes of moral turpitude." A conviction for a crime of this type can cause lifelong implications. Crimes of moral turpitude are regularly used to prevent persons from obtaining State and/or Federal licenses. Additionally, such convictions are frequently used as grounds to terminate employment contracts, deny lease applications and to impeach persons who testify under oath.

Theft crimes frequently involve allegations of misconduct occurring over long spans of time. For these reasons, proper investigation and preparation are essential to a successful legal defense. Mr. Threadgill, as an attorney in Sugar Land is prepared to put his knowledge and training to work for you in this regard.
