Shoplifting Attorneys in Fort Bend County

Arrested for Retail Theft in Sugar Land?

Shoplifting is the crime of knowingly taking an object from a store with the intent of not paying for the item or knowingly paying less for the item than the listed sticker price. This particular offense is described in Texas Penal Code §31.01 and although it is usually charged as a misdemeanor offense, it could potentially be elevated to a major offense and be charged as a felony crime. If you have been charged with any theft crime, you need to contact Stornello Law Firm, P.C. right away and retain trusted legal representation. If you are convicted of this offense, you could potentially be facing jail time, fines and restitution and could risk probation.

The crime of shoplifting is sometimes referred to as a petty crime and some people assume that they can handle the offense themselves; however, this is not recommended. The prosecuting attorney will do everything in their power to ensure that you receive the maximum amount of penalties for the charges you are facing and you could potentially have your crime elevated to a felony offense. You should never have to navigate the Texas criminal justice system alone and when you work with our experienced Sugar Land criminal defense lawyers, you will never have to. We proudly provide 20 years of trusted representation to our clients and we may be able to help you reach a positive outcome for your case.
