More Than 15 Years of Criminal Defense Experience in New Jersey
Like smoking, shoplifting has become almost a rite of passage for many kids while growing up. The law, however, does not take such a lenient view of retail theft, and views all shoplifting, from "prankish" shoplifting to carefully executed retail larceny, as serious theft crimes.
Legal penalties for shoplifting vary with the amount of merchandise stolen and can result in consequences such as jail time and expensive fines. If you were accused of shoplifting, you need experienced legal help to fight your charges and protect your rights.
