Shoplifting Charges at Walgreens in St. Louis, MO - for as little as $450
Have you recently been charged with shoplifting at a Walgreens in the St. Louis area? Was the value of the allegedly stolen goods more or less than $500? Do you know why that is such an important question? Are you now trying to figure out what your options might be? Do you have a good understanding of your legal rights? Do you know what the potential consequences are for pleading guilty to the charge? Are you aware of the benefits one is afforded by hiring an experienced attorney to help them out?
WE WANT TO GET THE MISSOURI SHOPLIFTING CHARGE REDUCED SO THAT IT DOES NOT SHOW UP ON YOUR RECORD
The first thing you should probably be aware of is just how severe of a sentence you are looking at if you plead guilty to the crime of shoplifting at Walgreens in St. Louis.
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 IS NOT YOUR BEST OPTION!!
So as you can see, hiring an attorney is far better than facing these types of consequences (to say nothing of what your job prospects will be like if you have such a blemish on your permanent record). At The Law Office of Jennifer Alter-Rieken, we have a much different plan of action in mind. We want to accomplish one of two things: 1) get the charge reduced to something trivial (like “littering,” which does not even show up on your record); or 2) get the charge dropped altogether. Either way, speaking with an attorney first before you do anything is a far better course of action!!
