What is hindering a secured creditor?

Section 32.33 of the Texas Penal Code covers Hindering a Secured Creditor. Section (b) of the code states, “A person who has signed a security agreement creating a security interest in property or a mortgage or deed of trust creating a lien on property commits an offense if, with intent to hinder enforcement of that interest or lien, he destroys, removes, conceals, encumbers, or otherwise harms or reduces the value of the property.” This can also involve moving the property out of state to avoid having a creditor repossess it (see Section 32.33(1)).
