It is easy to understand how paying for an item can be overlooked and mistakes happen. We understand this and most theft under charges are simple misunderstandings or a momentary lapse in judgement.
As your legal representative, we go to court with you to resolve the charge and ensure that you do not receive the penalties for this charge including:
- fines and jail
- travel restrictions
- employment issues
- a criminal record for life
- probation orders and conditions
- immigration and citizenship applications
The effect of a criminal charge resulting in a criminal record has long term effects that can affect employment, immigration and citizenship applications and other long term implications.
Many employers and even volunteer positions are requesting criminal record checks before accepting applications.
