Minimize the Risk of Harsh Alabama Penalties
In Alabama, if you are arrested for shoplifting, you may face serious consequences. Depending on the value of the item in question, you may face prison time, massive fines, and probation. If you were arrested for shoplifting at a jewelry store, arrested at a shopping mall or alleged to have stolen merchandise from any store in Alabama, theft defense attorneys at Boles Holmes White LLC will defend you. We will minimize your risk of harsh Alabama criminal penalties. Even a first-time offense for an item that is valued at less than $500 may lead to a year in prison and a fine of $6,000. Why face the possibility of suffering these penalties without an experienced lawyer defending you?
