Possession Of Stolen Property Is A Serious Charge
Texas law gives prosecutors broad authority to charge individuals with theft crimes. Possessing, receiving or concealing stolen property is a serious charge that can relate to just about any theft offense. Prosecutors often tack on a receiving stolen property charge to a burglary offense or allegations of writing a bad check.
A conviction for any theft offense can include both short-term and long-term consequences. Even if the judge places a person on probation, the effect of a theft conviction on your criminal record can limit your job or housing opportunities. If you are under investigation or formally accused of receiving stolen property, or any other theft offense, you need to protect your rights. At Terri Daniel, Attorney at Law, PLLC, in McKinney, I have extensive experience defending against all manner of Texas theft charges.

Skilled Advocacy In Complex Theft Crime Cases
Being accused of receiving stolen goods or possession of stolen property is much more complex than what may appear on the surface. Mere possession of the property is not sufficient to support a conviction. For example, the prosecutor must prove that you knew the property was stolen. If you received a gift from a friend that turned out to be stolen, you may have a solid defense. Do not take the allegations of the prosecutor as the last word. I do not. Every detail is important – I leave no stone unturned in preparing and presenting a defense to the charges.
I have more than two decades of experience in criminal law as both a prosecutor and criminal defense attorney. I am board-certified in criminal law by the Texas Board of Legal Specialization. Since 2003, I have focused exclusively on criminal defense. My background is a clear strength for people accused of a crime in Collin County. The depth and breadth of my knowledge of the law are a clear strength of my criminal defense practice. I work hard to challenge every detail of the prosecution’s case to safeguard the rights of clients. If you are accused of a crime, you need a lawyer who is willing to do the hard work to fight for your rights.
