The Law Office of William Orth can help you with any criminal defense case, including:
- If you pass all points of sale and fail to pay for any item when leaving a store, you can be charged with theft. Additionally, if after you have passed all points of sale and a representative from the retailer attempts to “detain” you and you resist, you could be facing a Robbery charge. Recently, if you “rent” items from certain retailers and you fail to make the timely payments or fail to return these items upon the retailers request you can be charged with a form of theft titled “failed to redeliver hired items” and additional theft charges. Depending on the retail amount it could either be a felony or misdemeanor.
