While shoplifting is the most common theft offense, these charges can cover a wide range of factors, including:
- Receiving stolen property
- Check fraud
- Credit card fraud
- Identity theft
Typically, the value of the goods determines the severity of the criminal offense. If the goods involved are valued high enough, the prosecutor's office can pursue a felony charge. Likewise, certain other factors can also lead to a felony charge such as whether the actual property was a motor vehicle or a firearm.
If you were caught shoplifting or a loved one is facing shoplifting charges, you need to act quickly. Even a crime of petty theft can have devastating effects on nearly all facets of your life. Contact a skilled Kansas City criminal defense attorney to discuss your specific matter in greater detail.
