Tavares Theft Lawyers
One of the most common mistakes people make after being arrested for a crime like shoplifting or petty theft is assuming that it is no big deal; they can just pay a fine and forget about it. Wrong. If you have been arrested for shoplifting, it is in your best interests to have an attorney.
At the Remsen Family Law Firm, we have extensive experience defending clients against theft and shoplifting charges in Central Florida. We understand how devastating the effects of these charges can be and strive to communicate openly with our clients about what they are facing and what their options are.
Not a One-Size-Fits-All Proposition
Theft is not as straightforward as one might think. Depending on the factors surrounding the charges, an alleged offender could be charged with a misdemeanor or charged with felony grand theft. Penalties could range from a small fine to a large fine and jail time.
In addition to the criminal penalties, there are long-term consequences that could affect your ability to be successful for years if not decades. Having theft on your record could make it difficult to pass background checks and prevent you from becoming employed in fields such as retail where you will interact with money.
