Facing Shoplifting Charges?

Retain an Experienced Los Angeles Criminal Defense Attorney

A crime of many names, shoplifting – also called petty theft, petty larceny, or fourth degree theft – is a common criminal violation in the greater Los Angeles area. Although it may seem as though there are no harsh penalties for shoplifting due to its frequency, the seriousness of the alleged crime can be quite severe. Your future and the charges you may face heavily depend on the value of the stolen item and the qualifications of your legal counsel.

Have you been accused of shoplifting? You need to contact a Los Angeles criminal defense lawyer from the Law Offices of Robert M. Bernstein by calling (888) 316-9513  today for comprehensive representation.

Avoid Lifelong Consequences of Shoplifting Convictions

Just like any other theft crime conviction, petty theft will go onto your criminal record and remain there for years, if not the rest of your life. An employer or educational facility that does a background check after receiving your application or résumé might deny you that opportunity for a shoplifting conviction alone.

  • Up to $1,000 in fines plus the cost of the item
  • Between six months and three years in jail
  • Community service and civil penalties

It should be noted that shoplifting charges usually apply to an item valued under the low amount of $50. If you are accused of stealing something worth more than $50, your penalties will surely increase and the crime could escalate from a misdemeanor to a felony.

Protect Yourself Now with a Sturdy Defense

Even though shoplifting can be called “petty larceny,” the penalties surrounding a conviction can be anything but small.
