Theft, including petty theft or shoplifting, is a common juvenile offense that is charged in Salt Lake City. While first-time petty theft offenses may not be seen as very serious, they can still carry significant criminal penalties, and repeat offenses will increase those penalties. Some juvenile theft convictions may also be considered felonies, which will go on a criminal record and impact a juvenile offender for the rest of his or her life.
At the law firm of Catherine Cleveland, P.C., I will provide an honest and frank evaluation regarding your case. I always take the time to thoroughly evaluate the charges brought against you or your child in order to determine the most effective method of defense. Consult my firm as soon as possible if you have become aware that your child is facing charges involving petty theft or grand theft.
