Financial crimes are often aggressively prosecuted, so you may be facing the possibility of a significant term of incarceration. In Harris County, credit card theft and fraud offenses may be prosecuted by the District Attorney's special crimes division, which has a major fraud section created specifically to handle credit card fraud offenses, identity theft and related offenses.
