Shoplifting Charges at Target in St. Louis, MO - for as little as $450
Have you recently been charged with shoplifting (or theft) at your last time to Target (in or around the St. Louis area)? Was the value of the stolen goods more or less than $500? Or was the value somewhere between $500 and $25,000? Do you know why that is an important distinction? Do you know what the consequences are if you simply plead guilty to this kind of charge? Are you aware the benefits involved with hiring an experienced attorney to help you through this process?
WE WANT TO GET THE MISSOURI SHOPLIFTING CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD!!
If you exercise the option of pleading guilty to the charge of shoplifting at Target in St. Louis, then you should be aware of the major consequences that can come your way as a result.
As of January 1, 2017, the following laws regarding stealing / theft / shoplifting went into effect:

PLEADING GUILTY TO THE CHARGE IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
As this information clearly indicates, you are far better off hiring an experienced attorney to help you out!! At The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, we want to accomplish one of two things with this kind of charge: 1) get the charge steeply reduced to a much lesser infraction (like “littering,” which does not even show up on your permanent record); or 2) get the charges thrown out (there is a smaller likelihood of this happening, but every once and awhile, the security guard who detained you may have violated your rights). Either way, consulting with an attorney before you make any kind of decision is a far better plan of action!!
