When a minor is charged with shoplifting, it is critical that you find an experienced defense lawyer to protect their reputation and future.

Is Your Minor Child Facing Shoplifting Charges?
A first offense for theft should always be addressed aggressively with your child. Shoplifting can become a habitual offense or even an addiction that continues in adulthood if not properly addressed. Furthermore, the penalties for repeat shoplifting arrests are more serious and can be more difficult to defend in court. If your minor child is facing shoplifting charges in Georgia, let us help at the law office of Thomas C. Rowsey. We provide compassionate guidance and tenacious representation for minors who have been caught stealing.
