Although shoplifting is usually a crime that does not involve violence, it is still treated seriously and carries harsh potential penalties. If you have been accused of shoplifting, it is important to work with an experienced Connecticut defense attorney who can help you understand your rights and your options, and defend you against these charges.

Shoplifting Charges Involving Women With Young Children
We have handled a number of cases that involve mothers with young or infant children. Usually these cases involve a mother stealing something small from a grocery store, retailer or other business. Even a small theft can lead to the separate charge of impairing the welfare and morals of a minor, or the charge can be elevated to a felony or more serious misdemeanor charge. That is why it is so important to have experienced legal counsel in your corner.
First-Time Offender Program ∙ Minimal Sentences ∙ Protecting Your Record
Most times, shoplifting charges are brought against people who have never stolen anything before and have no intention of ever attempting to do so again. If the circumstances are right, we can petition the court to have you enter in a first-time offender program. This can help minimize the penalties and may even keep the crime off of your permanent record.
