I was recently asked as an experienced Buffalo Criminal Defense Attorney what could happen if you were arrested for shoplifting. If you’ve been charged with petit larceny, commonly known as shoplifting, you may be looking at up to one year in jail. If you are a first offender, there are things that I can do as an Attorney to prevent you from getting a criminal record and potentially going to jail. Criminal records can have serious repercussions on your future, so our goal is to prevent you from receiving any type of criminal record or jail time. If you have been arrested for shoplifting in New York, contact our experienced Attorney for dedicated representation. We have over 30 years of experiencing helping good people through bad situations. Let us be your ticket to justice.
