Bad Checks, Shoptlifting, and Theft Legal Services
Many people do not realize shoplifting and bad checks are serious criminal offenses in Texas. Unless the check or item taken is under $20 in value, you could be looking at jail time. As a crime of moral turpitude, it can affect your ability to get a job or an apartment. US Citizens can be denied the ability to sit on a jury; immigrants can become deportable.
It is downright embarrassing to receive a warrant in the mail because you had a check bounce. It's even worse when you don't know it and you get stopped on a traffic violation. It is normal to be confused and even panic when charged or arrested for bad checks, credit card theft, workplace embezzlement, tag switching at a store, or shoplifting. You may already have said too much to the store security personnel or the arresting officer. Innocent remarks can be easily misconstrued.
We will take a personal interest in your case, advise you about your options, and guide you through the criminal justice process. Even if you feel your innocence is obvious, do not take a chance that the prosecutor will believe you.
