Theft is one of the most common criminal accusations people in San Antonio face.
At Del Prado Law, we know how frightening it can be for anyone to face a theft charge, especially as they may be unaware of the exact nature of the charge, its severity, or what penalties might be associated with it. Though many people believe that there is really only one type of theft offense, the reality is that there are far more than that, with each varying in definition and potential penalties. As such, understanding the seven main types of theft charges can be especially helpful for anyone facing a theft charge.
Different Charges of Theft
When it comes to theft charges in Texas, the nature of the theft will determine the exact crime a person faces. The main types of theft charges are:
- Grand Theft Auto
- Armed Robbery
- Bank Robbery
- Identity Theft
Each of these types of theft and/or robbery charges can be quite serious and may be punishable by more than just fines. Lengthy prison terms, reduced freedom, and more can all be penalties a person convicted of theft could face, making it critical to have a solid defense.
