Law Offices of John D. Lueck knows that shoplifting is a 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 a whole.
Here are some informative statistics about shoplifting in the United States:
- 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.
