Defending Your Felony Shoplifting Arrest

Combined, the founding New York criminal lawyers at Crotty Saland PC have managed, defended and prosecuted Grand Larceny and Petit Larceny shoplifting cases for decades as Manhattan prosecutors and as counsel to the accused. We have easily handled in varying capacities hundreds, if not thousands, of Petit Larceny and Grand Larceny investigations and arrests

Maybe you didn’t do it. Maybe you did, but your actions were a direct result of outside stresses or mental health issues. Maybe it was just a lapse in judgment. Certainly, no ethical or honest criminal attorney can guarantee a specific defense will exonerate an accused shoplifter each and every time, but there are certain successful strategies that can be tweaked, enhanced and utilized in many cases. Because your case, like each and every Grand Larceny shoplifting arrest charging New York Penal Law sections 155.30 or 155.35 or Criminal Possession of Stolen Property arrest charging New York Penal Law sections 165.45 or 165.50 is unique, it may be necessary to explore and implement an entirely new defensive strategy.

Regardless of your chosen defense – confronting the allegations head on or mitigation – your criminal attorney should have the ability to navigate the process, explain it to you and work with you to put forth what he or she believes is the best defense to avoid the life altering consequences of an arrest or conviction. If your defense is to confront the allegations straight on, then be prepared to corroborate your position or attack the prosecutor’s. Should your defense be more of the mitigation approach, you will have extensive homework to do. Transcripts, medical records, certificates, letters of reference and other testaments to your character may be required. Furthermore, be prepared to explain the concrete steps you have taken to better yourself since your arrest.

The New York criminal defense attorneys and former Manhattan prosecutors at Crotty Saland PC have successfully kept clients from jail in multi-million dollar Grand Larceny investigations and even from criminal records where they have been charged in other Grand Larceny crimes. In fact, our criminal lawyers have preserved the records of alleged felony shoplifters who were accused of stealing more than $1,500, $2,000 and $4,000 in store merchandise. Despite these resolutions, however, our attorney will not guarantee that our past success will result in the same outcome in your case. To believe so would be completely naïve and wrong. What we will guarantee is that our criminal defense attorneys will work with you to formulate a plan of action, implement the defense we believe is best with your set of facts and strive to protect you today and well beyond tomorrow.
