Shoplifting Attorney in Indio, CA

So, you have been charged with shoplifting and although you were arrested, in your heart you still see it as something of a petty crime. Unfortunately the law doesn’t see it that way and neither will your family, your future employers, your future lenders, or anyone else who you want to trust you in the future. A shoplifting conviction is a terrible thing to have sitting on your criminal record and without a professional shoplifting attorney, you might have it sitting on there for the rest of your life.


Whether you were charged with shoplifting because you absent-mindedly wheeled your grocery cart out of the store with an extra 12-pack of Diet Coke on the bottom of your cart, or you walked out of a jewelry store with a new watch on your wrist, the punishment could well be the same. Retailers do not take kindly to shoplifters, whether it was accidental or intentional, and without a good shoplifting attorney, the court will not be able to see the difference either.

Do not make the mistake of thinking that a shoplifting charge is minor. It is theft, and again depending on what you stole, it could be a very serious crime. Stealing a pack of gum is one thing, but when you walk out of a store with items valued in the hundreds or even thousands of dollars, then that is certainly no longer petty theft in the eyes of the law, and you will pay the price for that.

An Indio shoplifting attorney is experienced in handling cases just like yours. They don’t do murder cases and they don’t do DUI’s, they do cases just like yours every day. That should make you feel good because they know the business, they will know the people in court, and they will also have very realistic expectations as to what you can expect, and whether you can hope to get the charges reduced or changed.

Once you have been convicted of any shoplifting offense, your life will change. You will no longer be trusted by those around you, you may have trouble getting a job, and if you are ever caught again, you will no longer be thought of as innocent until proven guilty. For your own sake, get a shoplifting lawyer who is experienced enough to defend you as early as you can.
