Defending Theft Cases in Ellis County

My passion for criminal defense has involved taking very deliberate and detailed steps in gaining both experience and knowledge to become an Ellis County criminal defense attorney. While serving as a Texas Peace Officer, I had the opportunity to work thousands of cases involving theft related offenses. As a state prosecutor with the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office, I prosecuted multiple types of theft cases. That hands-on and academic experience enables me to give you a thorough and relentless theft defense.

Cases Prosecuted

The Texas Penal Code 31.03 defines theft as the unlawful appropriation of property, which can apply to an extremely wide variety of circumstances. In working as a prosecutor with the Tarrant County District Attorney’s Office, I prosecuted many theft and property cases.

Those have included, but are not limited to:

  • Theft
  • Auto Theft
  • Theft by Check
  • Fraud
  • Welfare Fraud
  • Embezzlement
  • Unauthorized Use of a Motor Vehicle
  • Shoplifting
  • Vandalism
  • Criminal Mischief
  • Criminal Trespass
  • Burglary (of Habitation or Building)

Taking Ownership of Your Case

At Robin McCarty, Attorney at Law, I will thoroughly review the State’s case against you, as I do with all my clients. Theft and property-related charges have serious consequences if you are convicted. Nobody wants to be labeled a “thief” for the rest of his or her life, and theft convictions can cause you to lose your current job and prevent you from obtaining a job in the future. I defend all theft-related charges with the type of vigor and preparation you would expect from a former felony prosecutor.

Aggressive Negotiation and Litigation

My goal is to aggressively defend you and your rights with zeal while preparing your theft defense. I will work with prosecutors, some being my former peers, in negotiating the best possible outcome. However, if we cannot come to an agreeable plea bargain, I will force them to prove their case in trial.

I recognize that not all clients require legal services during standard business hours. That is why I make myself available evenings and weekends. For more information or to schedule a free consultation, contact me.
