Pittsburgh Shoplifting Attorneys | Retail Theft

Shoplifting, also known as Retail Theft in Pennsylvania, is a very serious crime and could be considered a felony. If convicted of shoplifting, you could pay high fines, spend time in jail or prison and suffer from having a permanent criminal record.

Being convicted of shoplifting can affect many aspects of your future, including being able to find employment and an apartment or house.

It is important to remember that an arrest or being charged with shoplifting is not a conviction and that your rights and freedom can still be fought for – a reduction in sentencing or having your charges dropped altogether is possible.

If you are a minor or your child was charged with shoplifting, it is in your best interest to contact an experienced Pittsburgh juvenile criminal attorney.

At Shrager Defense Attorneys, we know that good people make mistakes all the time and oftentimes people are wrongly accused. Shoplifting is done on impulse and people who do it feel a tremendous sense of guilt afterwards. In some instances, especially for adolescents, peers may even provoke shoplifting, further complicating good judgment.

One impulsive move can drastically change our lives. But that doesn’t mean you deserve such harsh punishment. Call an experienced Criminal Lawyer in Pittsburgh for a free consultation.
