Criminal defense plans unclear for woman facing charges

A Texas woman is facing serious charges for alleged theft of property from her place of work. She was recently indicted by a grand jury and could face potentially serious consequences if convicted. It is unclear if the woman has begun any preparations for her future criminal defense.

The woman worked as an administrative office clerk at a local water utility office until Jan. 30, 2018, when she was fired for allegedly violating policies and procedures for the utility company. It is not clear if those purported actions were related to her subsequent arrest in early July 2018. The woman's father was board president during the periods of time she is accused of criminal activity, but he is no longer with the utility.

Authorities claim that the former clerk stole a significant amount of money from the utility. Although they did not disclose the exact amount, the utility company claimed that its financial statements showed approximately $80,000 worth of deficits. Her criminal charges reflect four counts of theft for property worth between $2,500 and $30,000. She is currently out on bonds of $20,000 and is set to appear in court toward the end of July 2018.

Criminal charges of any kind can have profoundly negative influences on a person's life. From potential jail time and fines to the exclusion of certain opportunities -- especially those involving employment -- Texas defendants may feel understandably worried about their futures. Those who begin their criminal defense preparations as early on in the process as possible typically develop a solid understanding of how to handle their charges to achieve the best possible outcome.
