Serious Implications For A Theft Conviction
In Illinois, anytime someone steals an item or merchandise from a retail store, they have committed retail theft, and that is punishable by law. Depending on the retail value of the stolen items and your criminal record, you could be charged with a misdemeanor or a felony offense, up to $25,000 in fines and up to seven years serving jail time.
Having criminal retail theft charges brought against you can affect both your personal and professional life. It may make things like getting a job or renting an apartment much more difficult if it shows up on a background check. If you have been charged with retail theft or another theft offense, it is important to have an effective criminal defense attorney with experience in the area and knowledge of the law.
