Theft is a broad term that applies to an extensive range of activity in Texas. The word conjures up an image of a shoplifter or pickpocket. These are serious crimes in and of themselves.

Theft laws can also apply to less obvious conduct. In addition to complex or violent offenses like burglary or robbery, theft can pertain to identity fraud, embezzlement, laundering schemes, and more.

Some of these offenses don’t require the taking of someone else’s property at all. That might be surprising, but it indicates that criminal law has a wider reach than people may realize. One that can create problems for the unaware.

Sadly, people who stand accused of theft crimes in this country often had no idea they were committing a crime. That’s an important distinction because most theft crimes require the prosecution to prove intent to win a conviction.

It isn’t easy to fight issues like intent, consent, and other factors pertaining to theft. Prosecutors have considerable authority and take theft cases seriously. Without an aggressive team of defense attorneys, it could be an uphill battle for freedom, even for the innocent.

Federal Theft Charges

Just as the State of Texas has criminalized most forms of theft as state-system criminal offenses, the federal government is also able to pursue some theft acts as separate federal crimes.

Federal larceny laws are designed primarily to protect public property (that is, property owned or insured by the federal government). Accordingly, if you steal property from a building and are brought up on federal charges, it’s likely that the institution was federally protected.

Some crimes almost always trigger federal investigation. Bank robbery, high-level financial fraud, embezzlement from a federal institution, and certain Internet crimes are all likely to involve federal law enforcement.

Some state investigations can involve ancillary federal charges. Examples include a state robbery case involving federal weapons charges, or burglary involving illegal drugs that are allegedly used in an trafficking conspiracy.

While most theft cases are resolved entirely in state courts, it is important to understand that federal authorities can be involved in many ways, and they are often eager to do so.

If you are facing federal theft charges, contact the experienced federal theft defense attorneys at Oberheiden, P.C. today.

Whether your charges are state or federal in nature, it is always a mistake to represent yourself in any criminal proceeding. Even if you’re innocent, you are no match for federal or state prosecutors. Their goal is to maximize your sentence, regardless of how fair or unfair that might be.

Likewise, defendants often ultimately regret entrusting their defense to public defense lawyers. Public defenders may be very dedicated to their jobs, but are often simply overburdened by a hectic legal system. It’s very difficult for today’s public defenders to give their cases the time and attention they really deserve.

Theft charges are extremely serious. You must respond in the best way possible. Don’t delay hiring experienced defense lawyers. Contact the state and federal theft defense attorneys on our team by calling 888-680-1745. You can also submit our online form to request a free consultation today.
