Shoplifting and Retail Fraud
Retail Fraud Charges in Flint
Shoplifting is not a minor legal problem. The value of the item that was alleged to have been taken illegally will determine the level of the charges filed, whether misdemeanor or felony. If you are facing a shoplifting charge, it is imperative that you get legal representation to help you defend against the charges. In some cases, our early involvement in the case can allow for alternatives other than being charged in criminal court. If you are ever stopped by a store detective and taken to the office to await law enforcement, your call to a Flint criminal lawyer from Shaun R. Marks, P.C. is one of the most important calls you can make. The faster I get involved, the more likely I can achieve a better outcome in any shoplifting charges.
