Round Rock Shoplifting Lawyer

Arrested for shoplifting?

An arrest for shoplifting can have many consequences in a person's life, including jail time and the payment of fines and restitution. It will also leave you with a criminal record that may hinder your ability to find a job and obtain certain types of security clearances.

Shoplifting can be charged as a misdemeanor, state jail felony or felony. Misdemeanor cases include:

  • Class C misdemeanor - the value of the property stolen is less than $50
  • Class B misdemeanor - the stolen property value is more than $50 but less than $500
  • Class A misdemeanor - the property that was stolen is valued at more than $500 but less than $1,500


The prosecution will pursue a conviction in a shoplifting case just like any other criminal offense. In certain situations, you may be eligible for deferred adjudication, which can result in a case dismissal if you successfully complete your probation requirements. A Round Rock criminal defense lawyer is the best person to consult regarding your case. Once you understand your legal options, it will be easier for you to decide how to proceed with your case.
