Austin Theft & Assault Attorney

Theft, Assault And Crimes of Moral Turpitude

While in most circumstances these charges are misdemeanors, a conviction for these offenses can have substantial effects on your ability to own a firearm, to obtain housing and gain employment.  Theft is a crime of moral turpitude which could negatively affect your ability to obtain employment.  If the assault allegation involves anyone that you have ever been in a relationship with, you are related to or have ever lived with, that conviction will disqualify you from ever possessing a firearm under federal law.

Assault involving a family member is a serious charge and can have serious repercussions.  When relationships go bad, the scorned partner may feel angry and spiteful.  Sometimes the people who know us most intimately are the ones who want to hurt us the most.  Because they are so familiar with your habits and routine, they are also the most capable of telling the police a story that seems credible.  It is important that the attorney you hire understands the nuances of domestic violence prosecutions and how to show a prosecutor, Judge or jury the inconsistencies in the complaining witnesses story.
