Theft: A Broad Category Of Criminal Charge

All of the following are types of theft:

  • Shoplifting
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Identity theft
  • Counterfeiting
  • Forgery
  • Extortion
  • Auto theft
  • Embezzlement
  • Theft by trick
  • Theft by check

This type of criminal charge should always be taken seriously. Texas law provides for a broad range of punishment for any of the above charges based on the circumstances surrounding the charge, including the amount alleged to have been stolen, whether violence was used or threatened and whether a certain type of building was allegedly entered during the theft. Even a small sum alleged can result in significant penalties and jail time. You should also keep in mind the state will also seek restitution of the amount they prove was taken illegally.
