Shoplifting Lawyer Rancho Cucamonga
One of the most common crimes committed in the United States is shoplifting, which is why it is important to obtain a Rancho Cucamonga attorney if you have been accused of the unlawful act, as cities are beginning to make examples out of the act’s commonality to avoid its permeation into the courts.
At the Law Offices of John D. Lueck, we are often troubled by the allegations of shoplifting, simply because they can be the result of mistakenly placing an item in a bag, or leaving the store without removing a security sensor from an item. With our 35 years of experience in defending shoplifting cases, we have seen everything from unlawfully detained clients whose rights were violated under the guise of an arrest for alleged shoplifting, to complete mistaken identity cases that have left our clients scrambling to redeem themselves through the courts. The problem is, since shoplifting is such a prevalent act, everyone is treated criminally for even the smallest misunderstandings. Our attorney, John Lueck, is experienced in each form or level of shoplifting that can be prosecuted in a court of law, and provide extraordinary defense strategies for each to assist our clients in responding to these charges effectively.
Attorney, John Lueck, provides free consultations to those being charged with shoplifting in an effort to find out the details of the accusations, detainment and arrest. Once the information is available to us, we are able to provide a defense strategy to assist our clients in receiving the best possible outcome available for their particular case. Each shoplifting case differs depending on the charges, the amount of merchandise in question and the previous record of the person charged. Our attorney will work diligently to ensure the minimum charge is applied, and a sentence structure is formulated to meet the lesser charge. In some cases, the charges are thrown out completely due to the improper handling of the case by the retail outlet, its security division or the resulting arrest. Once we are able to determine the details and complexities of your case, we will be able to devise a defense to counter the prosecutor’s allegations effortlessly.
The Law Offices of John D. Lueck in Rancho Cucamonga knows that shoplifting is big business in some cities, and that the small cases do add up. We understand how this upsets the retail outlets, and enhances theft deterrents, but we do not agree with holding a single shoplifter responsible for the overall pillaging plight in the retail industry as whole.
Shedding light on the district attorney’s office’s overzealous approach to prosecuting shoplifters are the following statistics:
- Over $13 billion are stolen from retailers each year in goods. ($35 million per day.)
- In the past five years, over 10 million people have been stopped for shoplifting.
- Men and women shoplift equally as often. There is no shoplifting “profile”.
- Shoplifting is often not a premeditated crime. 73% of adult and 72% of juvenile shoplifters do not plan to steal in advance.
- Approximately 3% of shoplifters are “professionals” who steal solely for resale or profit as a business.
No matter your shoplifting charge, your intent or compulsion to steal, we will represent your case with dignity and fervor to help you overcome the allegations against you in a court of law.
