Person stealing merchandise

Need an attorney for a shoplifting case in Scranton? If you are facing a simple shoplifting charge, you may wonder whether it is truly in your best interests to work with a lawyer in the first place.

Even if the potential penalties you are facing seem minor or the plea bargain offered by the prosecuting attorney seems reasonable, it is important to at least discuss the matter with an experienced lawyer who can help you understand what you are truly up against and can offer you insights as to all of the potential repercussions of a conviction.

What is considered to be "shoplifting" in PA?

Shoplifting, also referred to as retail theft, occurs when a person takes property from some sort of establishment that has the property on display for sale. The value of items taken and the defendant's criminal history, if any, are the two main factors that will influence potential sentencing for a shoplifting conviction in Scranton or Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania. Accordingly, shoplifting may be a misdemeanor or a felony offense depending on the circumstances.

Because shoplifting is frequently considered a lesser criminal offense, there are situations where a defendant may qualify for alternative sentencing. This may include community service and probation through Accelerated Rehabilitative Disposition, or ARD, which would also allow you to avoid having a conviction on your criminal record. However, leniency of this kind may not be an option if the value of property is great or the case involves multiple shoplifting offenses.
