Houston Shoplifting Attorney
Shoplifting may seem like a reckless teen's prank and seem like no big deal if the stolen item was small, but Texas laws take even a one-time prank or accidental theft very seriously. Even if you are wrongfully accused of stealing, you should contact a skilled defense lawyer immediately if you are arrested for or charged with shoplifting.
Houston theft defense lawyer David Breston has represented people charged with shoplifting and other theft crimes for over a decade. While shoplifting is considered a crime of moral turpitude committed by a "bad" or immoral person, attorney David Breston provides an aggressive and complete defense.
Defense Representation with a Look at the Big Picture
Shoplifting is commonly committed by juvenile offenders. In these cases, the theft may have been a prank or a one-time mistake in judgment. We understand that a juvenile's life can be negatively affected for years if this type of charge will create a criminal record. We work to minimize the charges through negotiation and lessen the negative impact on the teen's future.
In the thousands of cases we have defended, our goal is to always provide a strong defense in order to help our client secure a positive resolution. When appropriate, we assist our clients in getting expert help for any underlying issues - such as alcohol or drug abuse, depression, or a recent family break-up - in addition to defending them in negotiations and court.
