Texas credit card fraud laws define acts, defenses

Credit card fraud is a felony in Texas. Its definition includes a number of different acts. To offer a few examples, each of using another person's credit card, selling a card, buying a card from other than its issuer, making use of a fictitious card, or using a card that has expired or been revoked may constitute credit card fraud under the Texas Penal Code.

Texas courts and alternative sentencing

Those who face criminal charges in Texas could potentially avoid spending time in prison even if they are convicted. Because judges have the ability to hand down alternative sentences, defendants may be able to complete their punishments via means like performing community service, serving probation or paying fines. In some cases, judges can decide to impose suspended sentences on those who haven't been convicted of crimes in the past or who face minor misdemeanor charges.
