Ask a Criminal Defense Lawyer: What’s the likely outcome of a shoplifting charge?

If you are caught shoplifting in downtown Buffalo, you will be arraigned in Buffalo City Court.  in some cases, the accused may be charged with Petit Larceny along with possession of burglar tools, possession of stolen property, and criminal mischief. If the criminal charges allege that less than $1,000 dollars worth of goods were stolen, then an adjournment in contemplation of dismissal is certainly possible.

It is critical that your Buffalo Criminal Attorney resolve each charge.

Generally speaking, without any of the unique facts in your case which likely make a significant difference, the District Attorney will likely offer community service, counseling, and a reduction to the non-criminal offense of Disorderly Conduct.

The Criminal law is complicated. For more questions, contact Andrew Tabashneck attorney for a free consultation.
