Theft & Shoplifting Charges

Individuals from every walk of life and of every age and economic background can find themselves facing charges of theft. This is partially due to the fact that so many criminal acts fall under the theft umbrella. Unfortunately, every one of them can potentially result in a conviction with serious penalties.

Allegations of shoplifting can stem from a number of activities including:

  • Leaving a store without paying for an item, including having an unpaid item among paid items in your shopping bag or cart
  • Walking out of a clothing or department store while wearing an article of clothing that wasn’t purchased
  • Switching price tags on items in an effort to pay a lower price
  • Leaving a restaurant or bar without paying for a meal or drinks (“dining and dashing”)

It is important to note that to be convicted, the prosecution must prove that you acted knowingly. Our theft crime lawyers in Annapolis thoroughly inspect the circumstances of each case and assists our clients with sound legal defense against the charges. Don’t feel like your conviction is a foregone conclusion.
