Holiday Weekend Shoplifting Cases Expected to be High

Paramus Shoplifting Lawyers

With the economy bad and unemployment high, shoplifters are likely to be out in droves this weekend.  As a result, shoplifting cases in Paramus, Livingston, Woodbridge, Elizabeth, Freehold, Stafford, Jackson and other towns where shoplifting cases are common are likely to be high.  Our New Jersey shoplifting attorneys have found that early attorney involvement can make a big difference in the ultimate outcome of the case.  With electronics always a favorite target of shoplifting defendants, it becomes easy for anyone to pick up felony charges.  If you are charged with shoplifting in New Jersey and the value of the items allegedly taken is over $200, you will be facing felony charges.  Even if the value is under $200, shoplifting charges are getting tougher to defend.  For unknown reasons, courts around New Jersey are taking a tough line on shoplifting charges by preventing prosecutors from offering good plea bargains.  Thus, it is more important than ever to get a shoplifting lawyer that will fight for you.
