Christensen v. State

In Christensen v. State, 240 S.W.3d 25 (Tex. App.--Houston 1st Dist. 2007, pet. ref'd), the appellant was accused of theft for commingling charity funds with his union's general funds, and the Court considered whether the appellant had used the money for personal gain in examining the evidence demonstrating his intent to commit theft. Id. at 31-32. The Court concluded that the evidence was insufficient to support the appellant's conviction for theft because there was no evidence that he had the criminal intent to commit theft. Id. at 36-37.
