Shoplifting/ Retail Theft Charges (Philadelphia Area)

It is important to hire a lawyer to handle a retail theft charge–even if it is a first offense. A conviction for retail theft can remain on your criminal record and can affect your future. Also, if it happens again, the penalty increases. Don’t regret not hiring a lawyer to work for your best interests and negotiate a lenient punishment or not guilty verdict.

There may be an opportunity to reduce the charges or pay full restitution and have the charges to be dropped. Another option might be a discretionary program called Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition, also known as ARD. If you are admitted to the program you will pay a fine, receive probation for 1 to 2 years and perform community service. If you successfully complete the program, the charge will not be placed on your record. You will be able to honestly admit to having no criminal conviction. Consulting with an attorney before making any important decisions is vital.
