Harris County residents facing criminal charges likely understand how serious
their legal dilemmas can be. A criminal conviction can result in a person
being subjected to long-term penalties that may have repercussions for
the rest of his life. Theft charges and other crimes related to the taking
of another person's property can be penalized in Texas with jail time
and other significant punishments.
However, not every allegation of theft or stealing is warranted. In some
cases, individuals erroneously report crimes based on the taking of property
when, in fact, no crime was actually committed. Additionally, in some
situations a prosecutor's case of alleged theft may not fully meet
all of the required elements of the charge under the state's law.
When a prosecutor fails to make his case or when a party has a defense
to a theft-based crime, the individual facing the charge or charges may
be exonerated by the criminal court.
That is why it is important for individuals who are confronted with difficult
criminal charges to understand their rights and potential defenses. A
well-planned criminal defense strategy may be what an individual needs
to overcome his legal hardships and return his life back to its intended
track. At the Law Offices of Jed Silverman, we help our clients undertake
just such preparations.

what can be difficult criminal hearings. Though there is no way to ensure
a positive outcome during a criminal trial, individuals who prepare criminal
defense strategies can have confidence that their voices will be present
in the consideration of their
theft and property crime matters.
