Deceptive Business Practices Laws in Texas

Posted On - August 11th, 2010 | By Tim Clancy | Category - Criminal Defense

Deceptive business practices sound like something that should be handled in the civil courts. But District and County Attorneys in Texas have recently been discussing the criminal aspects of these situations and focusing more of their efforts on prosecuting those they believe to be criminally deceiving the public.

What Is It?

Simply put, the deceptive business practices that are criminal are, basically, of the “bait-and-switch” variety – selling or delivering less than the quantity advertised, selling something used as new, misrepresenting the price of something to be sold. While the laundry list of crimes in the Deceptive Business Practices statute are misdemeanors, you still need the knowledge, experience and skill of an aggressive defense lawyer.
