Have You Been Accused Of Shoplifting In Connecticut?
Shoplifting is a larceny offense that involves theft from a retail store. Many people mistakenly believe shoplifting is a minor offense and getting caught will only have minor, temporary consequences. In fact, a shoplifting conviction can hamper you in many ways. Employers are often reluctant to hire anyone who has been convicted of shoplifting. A conviction could prevent you from getting accepted into schools and from finding housing and even getting a loan.
We understand the importance of limiting the damage this charge will have on your life. Whenever possible, we seek to get shoplifting charges dismissed outright. For first-time offenders, it is sometimes possible to get the charges dismissed in exchange for restitution and community service or by using a diversionary program. Even when the evidence is strong and the charges severe, we can employ proven defense strategies on your behalf.
