SHOPLIFTING


Shoplifting is the taking of merchandise from a store with the intent to keep it permanently. If the value of the merchandise taken is over $250 it can be charged as a larceny over $250 making it a felony in Massachusetts. A shoplifting conviction can carry a fine of up to $250 if the value of the merchandise is less than $100; a $500 fine for a subsequent offense and 2 years in the house of corrections for a third or subsequent offense.

 

A majority of shoplifting charges in Massachusetts s are petty crimes committed by people who have no prior criminal record and steal or shoplift out of impulse control or other behavioral issues totally unrelated to the act itself. Some people with impulse control or untreated behavioral issues end up with multiple arrests and convictions without even realizing the reasons they are engaging in such high risk behavior. We work with experts who can help explain to the Court that actions like these are impulse control issues that can be treated and controlled through counseling rather than in a criminal conviction on someone’s permanent record. If you are charged with a theft crime like shoplifting whether it be a petty crime or a much more serious felony in Boston or anywhere in Massachusetts. Call attorney Frank Fernandez now for a free consultation, 617-393-0250.

 

Students and non-US citizens who are charged with shoplifting must be very careful in the way that their case is disposed. A noncitizen may face immigration consequences from shoplifting a charge if the amount is over $250 and it is charged as a larceny over 250. Two convictions of misdemeanor shoplifting are considered crimes of moral turpitude and can also trigger deportation or non admissability for non-US citizen.

 

Students must avoid a conviction for these types of offenses so they do not have to answer for this type of crime on their record to future employers or graduate schools.

I am happy that I chose Frank to be my lawyer, and I will choose him again in the future. Although we agreed that I will pay him more money if my case went to trial, but he did his best to get my case dropped, and in fact the case was dismissed, and I didnt have to go through a trial or pay him extra money. He did all the work and all i had to do was showing up in court, I didnt need to speak a word. Very impressing, Frank is someone you can trust, and I respect him and his work

Very honest. Accepted my case while I was in NYC. Explained to me exactly what will happen at minimum cost. First time I can say I met an honest attorney. As a business and real estate in NYC, I retained many attorneys whose goal was to maximize their fees. Mr Fernandez was very reasonable and upfront honest with his fee. Very highly reccomend.

Frank Fernandez should be the first call anyone makes within the Boston area for legal representation. As a working professional, I made a horrible mistake and I was arrested with the potential of spending a lot of time in jail with the potential to have charges escalated. His efforts saved me a lot of potential pain and grief. He came to my rescue when I had no family locally to help me out of the situation my actions caused.I was fortunate that I found him out of the chaotic choices that are out there. Frank is professional and cares about all of the elements which affected the outcome of my case. My life and my career are back on track and I could not have done this without Frank's ability to react and change the course of difficult decisions. Trust, integrity, honesty, alongside the ability to dig deep, are just some of the characteristics of the person who accepted my case in the middle of the night.If you need a sanctuary when you can only see your life taking a change for the worse, call Frank and explain the elements of your case. I've got his card in my car, my wallet, my desk when I've got the potential for any type of legal action. I know he's someone that I can depend upon.I'm not posting for sake of Frank's business, I'm posting to convey my thanks for a difficult set of circumstances that I'll not face due to his ability to think quickly and make reliable decisions in spite of the issues that resulted from my actions.
