New York Shoplifting Defense Attorneys

Theft Defense Lawyers in Middletown

Defending You Against Shoplifting Charges

Shoplifting is the most common type of theft crime dealt with by prosecutors and judges in New York State. The most common charge faced by individuals accused of shoplifting is known legally as "petit larceny" but is more commonly called "petty larceny". It is the theft of anything valued at less than $1,000.

Most shoplifters are not poor people who cannot afford to buy the items they are accused of taking — they are people with financial resources who have had a momentary lapse in good judgment.
