Defense Against Retail Fraud And Shoplifting Charges

Many young people don't seem to realize the consequences of property crimes such as retail fraud or shoplifting.

If you are a person of any age who has been arrested for retail theft, you should know that a jail term is a distinct possibility, as are substantial fines, probation, community service and restitution.

Handling A Wide Array Of Misdemeanor Theft Offenses

Theft of merchandise whose worth is a certain monetary value level can be considered a felony. Misdemeanors that our law office focuses on are typically tried in district court, and a conviction on one of the following charges could still mean serious punishment:

  • Shoplifting
  • Petty larceny
  • Retail fraud — the changing of price stickers or removal of anti-shoplifting devices
  • Employee theft
  • Bad checks
  • Breaking into a motor vehicle
  • Simple robbery

Taking Action To Protect Your College Student's Future

Certain provisions in Michigan law can keep a shoplifting charge off a convicted person's record. If necessary, we can work out a plea to lesser charges, or recommend community service or restitution.

Don't allow your son or daughter's future with the law to be stained by one avoidable, regrettable mistake. Whether a defendant lives in Greater Detroit or is a nonresident enrolled at a local college or university, you can make sure that his or her rights are protected from start to finish of the legal process at Selleck Legal, PLLC.
