Phoenix Shoplifting Defense Attorneys
Felony and Misdemeanor Shoplifting Cases
Have you or someone you know been arrested for shoplifting, petty theft, burglary or larceny in the state of Arizona or the greater Phoenix Metropolitan area? If the answer is yes, then it is essential that you know and protect your rights by calling a skilled Criminal Defense Attorney immediately. Criminal Defense Lawyers PLLC will assist you with every step of your shoplifting or petty theft charge and will support you in obtaining a favorable outcome. Your record is our priority. Theft is considered a crime of “Moral Turpitude” that can negatively impact your ability to sustain or obtain employment. It may also have serious results that can affect your immigration status, possibly resulting in deportation.
Depending on the degree of theft, a person may be charged with a misdemeanor or felony offense. Petty theft, a lesser offense, involves the theft of property valued below or up to a certain amount. Grand theft involved property such as a vehicle that is worth a significantly higher amount. Petty theft is generally recognized as a misdemeanor unless it is combined with other offenses and/or previous petty theft convictions. When charged with petty theft when you have prior convictions it is especially essential to discuss your case with a Criminal Defense Attorney immediately to minimize the impact on your criminal record, jail time and the possibility for substantial fees and penalties.
Before implicating yourself in a petty theft or shoplifting crime, speak to a skilled Criminal Defense Attorney to fully understand your rights. It is not uncommon for prosecutors in some courts to offer plea agreements or plea bargains that may result in the avoidance of a criminal conviction. This is especially favorable when a defendant has no prior convictions or the crime was relatively minor.
