Were You Caught Shoplifting?
Experienced New Jersey Shoplifting Lawyer Discusses What To Do If You’re Caught Shoplifting
Once you purposely conceal anything that you haven’t bought, you can be charged with shoplifting. If you get out of the store, that is additional proof that you did not intend to pay for it. If you were caught shoplifting in New Jersey, the penalties can be severe. That’s why it’s important to contact an experienced New Jersey shoplifting lawyer as soon as possible to protect your rights, and defend your freedom.
Can Additional Charges Result if You Evade the Loss Prevention Employee or the Police?
If you are caught shoplifting and you evade the loss prevention employee, the next call that they’ll make will be to the police with a description of you and the direction in which you were heading. More than likely, the police will then find you and detain you. They may charge you with additional crimes, but more than likely, they’ll simply charge you with the shoplifting, unless you try to elude or get away from the police. In that case, they’ll try to charge you with evading arrest.
