Do not wait until arraignment.
Do not wait for a court date. The prosecutor will decide within days whether or not to file a charge against you. We may be able to convince the state attorney to drop or dismiss the charge or we may be able to get you into a pretrial diversion program. If you wait, you may miss an opportunity to get your case resolved without going to court.
Sarasota and Fort Myers Larceny Defense Lawyer
There are valid defenses to shoplifting. It may have been on accident.
Some people, as they get older become absentminded or careless. You may have put an item in your purse or pocket by accident. You may have simply overlooked something in your shopping cart and left the store without paying for it. A price tag may have fallen off or in some instances been accidentally switched. Contact our Sarasota criminal defense lawyers or Fort Myers criminal defense attorneys today and discuss what happened in your case.
We are not here to judge you — we are here to help you.
If you were charged with grand theft because the items were worth over $300, such as in the case of auto theft, we can still help. Grand theft is a felony that will follow you for the rest of your life. Our criminal defense attorneys may be able to get the charges reduced or in some instances dropped or dismissed.
Our attorneys may be able to see the store video and prove that it was all a big mistake. You may have been arrested simply because you were with someone else who took something. You do have options.
• Pretrial diversion
• Withheld adjudication (no conviction)
• Formal apology to the store
If we can get your case dismissed, we may be able to get your arrest record cleared, sealed or expunged. Even if you got caught stealing, we may be able to ultimately get your case dropped or wipe it out.
