Shoplifting is a form of theft charge that can create a unique set of problems. Often when someone is charged with shoplifting it is for a small dollar theft. Following what seems like a fairly minor situation, people will often receive what is called a “civil demand letter” often from a law firm in an entirely different state. The letter demands payment of a fine prior to you even going to court to determine guilt or innocence. Do not respond to a letter like this before speaking to an attorney! It can be seen as an admission of guilt!
Shoplifting, like any other theft-related charge, can have consequences that far outweigh the incident. Employment can be affected by being convicted of stealing a candy bar or a t-shirt! Don’t go into a case like this alone no matter how small it may seem at the time.
