Experienced Counsel For Retail Theft Charges

Those signs in retail stores that read "all shoplifters will be prosecuted" are no joke. Retailers do not hesitate to prosecute for these crimes as they view them as a substantial threat to their business's success, even in cases that involve low-ticket items.
