Facing shoplifting charges in New York? Contact criminal defense attorney John Ventosa today for a free consultation. Shoplifting can be charged as either Petit Larceny or Grand Larceny, depending on the value of the items stolen. Behaviors that may lead to a shoplifting charge include hiding a smaller object inside a larger object, direct theft, and changing price tags. The severity of the consequences associated with a conviction is dependent largely upon the retail value of the property that was taken.

Shoplifting incidents can occur from many different events, and often arise as a result of a misunderstanding or a simple error. In many cases there can be significant obstacles to the prosecution’s case due to a lack of clear and conclusive evidence. A knowledgeable defense lawyer can help to cast doubt upon the prosecution’s version of events, or plea bargain for a lesser charge when appropriate.
