Holiday Shoplifting Season Is Upon Us

Did you notice that right after Halloween was over, most stores were already putting up signs for Christmas sales? Yup, that's right. Forget about Thanksgiving "Black Friday", we are already in the Christmas shopping season. While you are busy making a list, many stories are focused on something other than your purchases. They are focused on those who they believe to be stealing from them during this holiday season.

NFL player arrested for Shoplifting

Another NFL player is in the news for being in trouble with the law. But it's probably not what you are thinking. This time an NFL player's brush with the law revolves around stealing from a store. Dallas Cowboys running back, Joseph Randle, was arrested last night for shoplifting from a suburban mall. He was charged with a misdemeanor Class B theft of $50 to $500, and was released on writ bond at early this morning. Randle is accused of attempting to steal underwear and cologne from a Dillard's. 

The High Price for Shoplifting

When we think about the crime of shoplifting, we usually think about small inexpensive items being taken out from a store. But what happens when you are charged with shoplifting items that cost tens of thousands of dollars?

Shoplifting Defense Strategy

Have you ever forgotten to pay for something at the store? Many people have, as it happens all the time. Are they criminals? Did they feel like committing a "heist"? Usually, the answer is no. A slip of the mind is all it takes to be labeled a "shoplifter". Luckily, defense lawyers have numerous ways to beat this charge.

Being Arrested For Shoplifting

It's hard to get around the term of "shoplifting" without the basic idea of it being that you took something of value from a store or business. It doesn't matter if you forgot to pay for it, or if suffer from kleptomania. The authorities won't be too forgiving when you are caught stealing. There are those people who commit shoplifting and admit to their wrongdoing. Some will say that even knowing that it was against the law, they did it because they thought they would never get caught. Showing this lack of remorse would be an example of how it can't help your case in court. A judge doesn't want to see, or hear, from a defendant who doesn't care about breaking the law.
