Fort Wayne Shoplifting Defense Attorneys
People often think of shoplifting as a minor crime committed by the young
with little to no consequences. It can be. But, in reality, many people
can face very serious consequences. A shoplifting charge is actually an
allegation of dishonesty. For example, if the amount stolen was of substantial
value or if the accused has a record of shoplifting convictions, that
person may face heightened consequences. One of the major concerns is
avoiding a felony criminal record that can hinder a person's ability
to find work or obtain professional licenses such as those required to
practice law or medicine.
One way to try to avoid a felony record is to seek a reduction in charges
to criminal conversion, which is a misdemeanor. Criminal conversion is
a lesser charge for borrowing something without the intent to keep it
