Joliet Retail Theft Attorney

Shoplifting Attorney Serving Will County

Have you been arrested for shoplifting and charged with retail theft in Will County, Illinois? In these situations, you need an experienced criminal defense lawyer to help address shoplifting accusations and defend against retail theft charges. Do not trust your reputation to just any criminal defense attorney. With a lawyer who has experience as a former Will County prosecutor on your side, you can determine your best options for defense.

Serious Charges

The penalties for retail theft can be very serious. Charges range from a simple misdemeanor offense to a felony charge, depending on the value of the item stolen and whether you have a previous retail theft charge in your past. A misdemeanor charge can carry a one-year sentence in the Will County jail, and a felony retail theft charge can carry a sentence of one to three years or more in a prison operated by the Illinois Department of Corrections.

Even without jail time, a conviction for retail theft can have a broad range of ramifications that may affect your life and your future. A conviction on your criminal record can affect your ability to obtain future employment and your reputation in the community, and it could possibly lead to the denial of a professional license. You cannot trust your case to just any lawyer. Hiring an experienced criminal defense lawyer is vital to the successful defense of your case.
