Los Angeles Shoplifting and Petty Theft Lawyer

Criminal Defense Lawyer for Theft Crimes

Shoplifting is typically described as taking a small amount of merchandise from a retail store illegally, and can be classified as a misdemeanor or felony offense depending on the value of the items taken. Petty theft is the unlawful acquisition of a person or business's property without their consent whose value does not exceed a certain amount. In most cases this amount is $400.

Being charged and convicted with shoplifting or petty theft can be a very serious matter. It can carry penalties ranging from fines, restitution, community service and even prison time, depending on the seriousness and severity of the infraction. A conviction on a shoplifting or petty theft charge, and the resulting criminal record, can follow you for years into the future and make it difficult for you to get a job, hold certain professional licenses, and apply for credit, among other things.
