Shoplifting Defense

There are numerous cases in which a customer (defendant) accidentallywalks out of a store with an item that has not been paid…… for purely by mistake.  Distractions, forgetfulness or other factors including mental disability could be reasons for the mistake.  When a store employee or loss prevention agent notices the suspicious actions, they usually follow and apprehend the suspect and take them to a back room where they will await law enforcement.  This can be a humiliating experience for those who have taken an item by mistake and for their family members.  It is important that you contact an attorney from the firm at once if you have been charged with this offense.  Usually, loss prevention officers will detain a “suspect” and force them to sign a confession before being released to the local police department.
