Shoplifting charges can have serious consequences

Many residents of California have extremely busy lives. Rushing from one place to the next, trying to get everything done before the day is out, it is easy to become careless or forgetful. Unfortunately, sometimes this can get you into serious trouble, especially if the mistakes you made can be construed as a deliberate attempt at committing a crime.

Shoplifting can carry heavy penalties

It is no secret that a criminal record can have a significant impact on your future in California. It can affect your job prospects, eligibility for benefits or housing and even come into play in child custody cases. The nature of the conviction determines how great an impact this may have on your life, but it is never something to be taken lightly. As such, a good defense is vital if you are facing criminal charges.
