Burglary Crimes in Texas

The crime of burglary requires proof that a person entered or attempted to enter a home or business without the effective consent of the owner of the property. In many of these cases, the corporeal personal property on the premises is taken without the owners consent. In other cases, a felony or assault is committed after the unlawful entry.

Burglary of a Vehicle

The offense of burglary of a vehicle involves entering a vehicle without the owners consent.

Burglary of a Coin-Operated Machine

The crime of burglary of a coin-operated machine involves the unlawful entry or breaking into the machine without the effective consent of the owner for the purpose of obtaining property or services.

Theft

Theft crimes in Texas involve the wrongful taking of property without the consent of the owner. The most common forms of theft include shoplifting and retail theft.

Criminal Mischief

When a tangible property is wrongfully damaged or destroyed without the consent of the owner, then a person can be charged with criminal mischief. In most cases, a prosecution for the crime of criminal mischief requires proof that the defendant committed the offense and written third-party damage estimates. The penalties and punishment for criminal mischief depend, in part, on the amount of pecuniary loss.

Criminal Trespass

The crime of criminal trespass requires proof that a person unlawfully entered another persons property without the owners effective consent and after being lawfully advised not to come onto the property.
