Protecting Yourself from a Conviction
When a store employee suspects someone else of shoplifting, they are expected to call the police. However, sometimes they take matters into their own hands, making things a little more complicated. As your advocate, we will investigate the circumstances of your arrest to find out if you were unfairly or unlawfully treated.
We may be able to defend you by showing that:
- Store personnel did not act lawfully when detaining you
- There is no video or documented evidence to prove you are guilty
- The allegations cannot be true based on other details
- The person who detained you had a criminal record
According to the law, you should only suffer criminal consequences if you are guilty beyond reasonable doubt. At Austin Law Associates, P.C., we help you recount the events from your perspective and possibly reduce the charges against you.
