The Resources To Challenge Shoplifting Charges
In Arizona, the penalties for shoplifting could include community service, mandatory counseling, jail time, heavy fines and long-term probation. These penalties increase depending on the value of the property stolen. The Law Office of Karl A. Mueller, PLC, is dedicated to providing an aggressive shoplifting defense in the East Valley and Phoenix areas. Our attorneys will aggressively defend your rights.
It is always worth the time and effort to seek representation from an experienced and resourceful criminal law attorney when you have been charged with shoplifting or petty theft. If you simply plead guilty, even to a misdemeanor charge, at the very least, you will have to do community service and pay a fine, and you will have a criminal record that will follow you for the rest of your life, through college, job and loan applications.
The help of our skilled attorneys can really make a difference, especially in circumstances where the stolen merchandise is worth less than $200 or where it would be a first offense if convicted. It is often possible to eliminate the charge entirely, plead to a lesser charge and/or seek alternative sentencing such as diversionary or deferral programs.
