Shoplifting, Vandalism and White Collar Crime

Charges of shoplifting, vandalism and larceny can have serious consequences for your future. While these types of crimes are, in most cases, modestly regarded from a punitive perspective, the mar on your personal criminal record can be enormously detrimental. Unfortunately, adolescents often find themselves entangled in the court system relative to these kinds of charges. To make it worse, the North Carolina criminal code considers adolescents to be adults at the age of 16 and they can be tried as adults in the criminal court system. We understand young people can lack the necessary judgment to understand the implications of shoplifting or vandalism charge. These types of convictions can have an immediate impact on your ability to secure and maintain productive employment and can limit your career and educational opportunities substantially.

White collar crime includes charges like embezzlement, check and credit card fraud and identity theft. An indictment on these charges generally follows a substantial investigation. Many times, an accused person will know they are being investigated. Retaining an attorney experienced in the criminal defense of white collar crime is imperative to mitigating long-term damages.
