Whether you’re charged with petty larceny (or stealing, or theft, or shoplifting, or any of the other variations of this crime) in a municipal court, or you are facing a felony stealing charge in state court, you need an aggressive defense. Employers do not want to see any charges on your record, but an offense of stealing/shoplifting/larceny can appear especially troubling. Assuming that you have no choice but to plead guilty is an incorrect assumption that can have long-lasting consequences.
The Lindley Law Office has represented dozens of felony stealing and misdemeanor shoplifting cases all over the St. Louis area, from water balloons to designer handbags, with typical results ranging from a reduction in charges to outright dismissals. You cannot afford a crime of dishonesty on your record, nor can you face big companies like Wal-Mart and Sam’s Club alone when they threaten you with civil actions on top of your criminal charge.
If you’re facing a charge of stealing, shoplifting, larceny, or any other name that a court decides to call this crime, call the Lindley Law Office today for a free consultation.
