Have you been charged with shoplifting, or minor theft?
Depending on the amounts involved, and if you have any prior Criminal record, we can often resolve Shoplifting charges without a Criminal Record. Alternative measures are often available for first-time cases of shoplifting, which can ultimately result in the charge being withdrawn following the completion of community service or a charitable donation. Theft under $5000 combined with other offences could result in a fine of up to $2000 and a prison sentence of up to 6 months.
McGlashan & Mackinnon can will help you learn about your rights and represent you with a shoplifting defense in court.
