Shoplifting Charges Can Carry Strong Penalties
People from all walks of life and economic circumstances can find themselves facing theft charges. A moment of poor judgment, financial pressures or even mental health issues can lead to a shoplifting arrest. In other cases, security or law enforcement personnel misread circumstances and unjust arrests occur.
Whether you are accused of taking a $10 item from a Disney World gift shop, stealing an electronic device from a retailer or committing any other theft offense, facing the charge alone could be a mistake you regret for years to come. At The Figueroa Law Firm, P.A., you will receive personally attentive, practical representation focused on protecting your record and your future. Our work together can begin with a free consultation.
