Arrested for shoplifting? Don't waste time in contacting a Las Vegas lawyer to discuss your case. As experienced Las Vegas criminal defense lawyers, we can offer you the knowledgeable help that you need.
Challenging Las Vegas, North Las Vegas or Henderson shoplifting and/or petit larceny charges can be complex, particularly because these cases often involve hard evidence that places the defendant at the scene of the crime. There may also be witnesses, such as store employees or security personnel, who will testify that you took an item. Furthermore, the item itself may be used as evidence against you if it was in fact found on you or in your vehicle or home.
An experienced Las Vegas lawyer can challenge all of the evidence against you. Even if it seems as though you have no chance of avoiding a conviction, a Las Vegas criminal defense attorney can tip the scales. Witness testimony can be questioned, as can the method in which an arrest or search was conducted, or how the evidence was processed by the government.
Petty larceny is considered a theft crime. Petty larceny in Las Vegas is most often charged as a misdemeanor, so long as the value of items taken does not exceed $250. Depending on the value of the property, petty larceny in Las Vegas, North Las Vegas and Henderson may be charged as a misdemeanor, punishable by up to six months in jail.
The important thing to remember is that a good Las Vegas lawyer can minimize the penalties you may face or help you secure an alternative sentence to avoid jail time, reduce fines and/or reduce/dismiss the charges. By contacting a shoplifting criminal attorney as soon as possible, you can learn more about your particular case and what can be done to help avoid a conviction.
Involving an attorney is one of the most important actions you can take in the face of allegations or charges for petty larceny. With the level of experience, legal knowledge and commitment Las Vegas petty larceny attorney Parviz Heshmati brings to the table, you can count on receiving the level of representation and service you deserve.
