Press Release (ePRNews.com) - PLANTATION, FL - Jul 19, 2016 - Babkes & Associates, a local South Florida law firm specializing in traffic ticket and violations, explains the benefits of having a lawyer represent you in a petty theft case. In the state of Florida, petty theft charges occur when someone is accused of stealing items valued between $100 and $299.
“There are serious long term consequences to a petty theft conviction,” said James Babkes, Partner & Attorney of Babkes & Associates. “A conviction for shoplifting is just like any other criminal conviction. You’ll have a criminal record that may follow you for the rest of your life. When you apply for a job, the employer will see the conviction when he does a criminal background check.”
“A conviction for shoplifting is just like any other criminal conviction. You’ll have a criminal record that may follow you for the rest of your life.”
Any charge, including a petty theft charge can make it harder for one to find a job. Also, applications for college or professional licenses, such as those to practice law or medicine, ask about prior convictions that will be discovered and could prevent one from obtaining licensure. Therefore, a petty theft charge is not as petty as it may seem.
