Shoplifting Is a Serious Crime

Shoplifting is one of the most common theft crimes heard in the Pennsylvania criminal justice system. Although some may consider it to be a relatively minor crime, it comes with penalties, one of which is a record that will follow you and impact future opportunities.

Based in Media, Pennsylvania, our dedicated criminal defense attorneys at Berman & Associates help those facing shoplifting charges throughout Delaware County, Philadelphia County, and Chester County. We aim to eliminate charges whenever possible and — when it’s not possible to eliminate all charges — we aggressively negotiate with prosecutors to minimize any penalties our clients may face.

There are diversionary programs available to address shoplifting first time offenders in Pennsylvania. Depending on your situation, you may qualify for a reduced charge or the charges may be eliminated completely. Often we can have the criminal record erased by petitioning the court for an expungement.
