Santa Rosa Shoplifting Defense Lawyer
Theft Crimes Attorney on Your Side
Shoplifting is considered taking property or items from a store without paying or obtaining permission, and is considered the number one property crime in America. Smaller offenses are classified as petty theft, if the amount of the goods cost less than $950, while larger offenses of over $1,000 are considered grand theft. The penalties for these can vary from a small fine to time in prison, and may also depend on the value of the items taken.
It is important for you to understand your rights if you are accused of shoplifting. That is why a Santa Rosa theft crimes attorney can be your best asset for defending your case.
