In Texas, property crimes cover a broad array of offenses. The most commonly charged property crime is theft, but also includes arson, criminal mischief, robbery, aggravated robbery, burglary, aggravated burglary, fraud, computer crimes, money laundering, insurance fraud, Medicaid fraud, and others.
In Texas, most of these theft-type property crimes are considered "crimes of moral turpitude." These are among the most debilitating offenses a person can be convicted of.
