Defining Theft and Shoplifting

The defense advocates at Miles Hansford, LLC, know how upsetting an arrest can be. We can help you understand the charges and their consequences, and possible outcomes. Shoplifting and theft of any type are serious crimes. The main aspects to shoplifting include:

  • Taking an item without paying
  • An intent to deprive an owner of possession
  • Altering or changing a price tag
  • Transferring an item from one container to another
  • Wrongfully causing the payment amount to be less than the item’s retail value

Theft is the intent by a person or a group of persons to deprive an owner of his or her property. Types of theft charges in Georgia include:

  • Theft by taking
  • Theft by deception
  • Theft by conversion
  • Theft by extortion
  • Theft by shoplifting

Due to the differences in types of theft, it is important to have a highly knowledgeable advocate who knows the difference between misdemeanor and felony charges, and knows the law. We have defended hundreds of clients through court proceedings and can protect your rights too.
