Caught Stealing Or Shoplifting? Let Me Help You Keep Your Record Clean.
Being charged with shoplifting or another petty theft charge may not seem like a big deal until you realize the effect a theft charge will have on your future. Try explaining it to an employer that wants to put you in charge of handling money.
If you have been charged with theft or shoplifting, the penalties upon conviction may not seem like much but can include a day in jail for theft of anything valued under $200. The real punishment comes when you have to carry around a conviction for the rest of your life.
