Theft and Shoplifting Charges:
Theft Under $5000 is a common offence, and the most common theft under $5000 offence that people get charged with is shoplifting charges. Shoplifting charges involves taking items from a retail establishment without paying for them.
If you are charged with shoplifting and have no previous criminal records, then it is important that you do not acquire an criminal record. Even if you have been charged with shoplifting before, an experienced lawyer may be able to persuade the Crown to withdraw the shoplifting case against you. If the Crown refuses to drop the shoplifting charges, there may be other options such as entering into the ‘diversion’ program and in rare case defend your case through a court trial.
