Holiday shopping is a busy, bustling and stressful exercise, and it gets worse as Christmas approaches. Shoppers have hundreds of things on their minds while trying to get everything on their gift list at the best prices. In addition, stores and security personnel are on a heightened alert for shoplifting this time of year. Regardless of how you came to be accused, you need an experienced criminal attorney to protect your rights when shoplifting is the charge.
What if I’m Not Guilty?
The law office of Rowsey & Stelter understands that many circumstances have a bearing on how and where you were charged with shoplifting. You may have been hiding a gift item from a child, fully intending to pay for it. You may have had your hands full and placed an item in your pocket for a moment, then forgot it. Under the law, the store has to prove beyond any shadow of doubt that you had a settled intention to steal the item or items.
An experienced criminal attorney from Rowsey & Stelter can understand your story, examine the evidence and circumstances and protect your rights. Don’t simply act outraged and give in if you are not guilty. You are innocent until explicitly proven otherwise. We will not let you be unjustly treated or convicted of shoplifting for a simple mishap.
