Touch Screen Tablets and Gym Shoes Allegedly Shoplifted

A 28-year-old was recently charged with retail theft after two touch screen tablets and gym shoes were found in his car. According to police, all of the merchandise was returned to the stores from which they were allegedly stolen. If you have been arrested for retail theft in Chicago, a criminal defense attorney should be contacted immediately so that you can have the optimal opportunity to obtain a favorable outcome in your case.

 

Although shoplifting is normally a misdemeanor, that’s only because the value of items that are normally stolen is such that it qualifies as a misdemeanor. However, if items valued at more than $300 are stolen, the charge can become a felony. What’s important to remember is that a conviction of either a misdemeanor or a felony is still a criminal conviction and brings with it undesirable penalties. A Chicago retail theft attorney can help you to clear your name or maintain your freedom if you are charged with shoplifting. In the long run, that can also mean preserving your reputation in the future when you may be applying for jobs, looking for housing, or trying to get a loan.
