What should I do if I was caught for shoplifting?
If you’ve been caught for shoplifting, what’s probably going to happen next is the store owner’s going to bring you into a room and they’re going to ask you a number of questions. They might want to take your photograph. They might want to get your information. They’re probably going to ask you to sign a document admitting that you did in fact take something and you’re now responsible for returning it or for paying it back to them. You don’t have to do any of these things.
In the event that you don’t do them, it’s likely that the police officers are going to be called. They will arrive at the store and either they’ll give you a promise to pay it or they will arrest you at the store.
The most important thing that you need to remember is to call an experienced criminal defense attorney so that we can best represent you in resolving this case. Don’t make any unnecessary statements. Call us so that we can help you.
