Property Crime Charges in Houston

Property crime charges are often the result of eyewitness statements or police informants. Many times other participants in a crime will single another member of the group out as being the actual perpetrator when in fact several actually participated in the crime. The accounts of eyewitnesses or police informants are often unreliable and may lead to a wrongful conviction if they are heavily relied on by a jury.
