Do I Need to Hire a Shoplifting Lawyer?

It doesn't matter if you have been caught shoplifting a candy bar or you have been accused of embezzling money from your job, theft is a serious crime and one that the authorities are doing their best to crack down on. The potential penalties you may face will depend on the value of the property or the amount of money you are accused of stealing. You need an experienced Minnesota Criminal Defense Attorney to help defend your rights.

The Rolloff Law Office will help to conduct a thorough investigation of your case. We review the evidence the police have against you. We obtain any piece of evidence that will be useful in your case, including surveillance footage, financial records and computer hard drives. We look for all possible defenses and will explain the options available to you. If you choose to go to court, Jay is an experienced trial lawyer and will fight for your rights. Regardless of the severity of your crime, he takes the charges against you seriously and work for the best possible outcome in your case.

The Rolloff Law Office handles many forms of theft charges, including:
  • Shoplifting
  • Robbery
  • Burglary
  • Receiving stolen property
  • Check forgery

Criminal convictions will show up on any background check. If you are convicted of theft, it may affect your ability to get a job, especially because accusations of theft tend to lead to mistrust. If you are convicted of felony charges, you will lose your right to own a gun, which includes a hunting rifle. You may also no longer be allowed to cross some international borders, such as the Minnesota border with Canada.

Call the Rolloff Law Office at (612) 234-1165 to schedule a time to come in and talk with me. If I am unable to answer your call, we will return it as soon as possible.
