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 permanently.
