Glendale Shoplifting Defense Attorney
Experienced and Effective Legal Representation
If you have been arrested for shoplifting in Glendale, it is important that you know you have rights that may have been violated in the process. Security guards in stores have a fairly limited sphere of jurisdiction, and although they can detain you, they do not have to read you your rights. Under no circumstances should you ever sign anything given to you or admit to a crime. This information will be used against you in court, and it happens too often that the only admissible evidence is that which was freely given by the alleged criminal. At the Law Offices of Jonathan C. Rose, a Glendale criminal defense lawyer can help you secure your future by defending your case.
As with all theft crimes, the severity of a particular charge will depend partially on the value of the stolen good and partially on the manner in which it was stolen. For example, shoplifting clearly carries different penalties than armed robbery, but it should also be known that the penalties for shoplifting can vary from a small fine to a year in prison. In general, shoplifting is charges as either petty theft or grand theft. Petty theft is that which is valued below $400. Grand theft is that which is valued above $400. If the good is valued at less than $50, it may be charged as an infraction.
