WE WANT TO GET THE MISSOURI SHOPLIFTING CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD!!
You should know right upfront that if you plead guilty to the charge of shoplifting (or theft) at Schnucks in St. Louis, you are potentially facing some hefty jail time and large fine.
As of January 1, 2017, the following laws regarding stealing / theft / shoplifting went into effect:
1. If you are caught with goods valuing less than $150, and you have had no prior stealing-related charges, it is a Class D Misdemeanor
2. If you are caught with goods valuing between $150 - $750, it is a Class A Misdemeanor
3. If you are caught stealing an animal; or if you have been previously found guilty of three 93) stealing-related cases within ten (10) years of the present case, it is a Class E Felony
4. If you are caught with goods valuing between $750 - $25,000, it is a Class D Felony
5. If you are caught with goods valuing $25,000 or more, it is a Class C Felony
PLEADING GUILTY TO THE CHARGE IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
But we have a much better plan in mind for dealing with this type of situation!! At The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, we want to first of all see if we can get the charges reduced to some lesser infraction (like “littering”). Or in the alternative, we would seek to have the charges dropped altogether (because it is possible that the security guard that detained you did it in an unlawful manner). Either way, hiring an experienced attorney to get the charges taken care of is far better than dealing with jail time, a huge fine, and a blotch on your permanent record.
