The Effects Of Petty Theft In California
Stealing less than $400 or property worth less than $400 is usually considered petty theft. While it may seem like a relatively minor charge, it is still a crime punishable by fines and possible jail time. Penalties increase with each shoplifting charge, and you may even face prison with multiple convictions. In addition, the offense will remain on your criminal record affecting applications for jobs, credit rating, rent property and schools.
At the law offices of Jachimowicz Law Group, we have the experience and skill needed to combat the impact of petty theft charges. By hiring our firm, you will benefit in a variety of ways:
- We have more than 100 years of combined legal experience representing clients throughout the South Bay area charged with petty theft and other crimes.

Lawyers For Defense Of Juvenile Theft Cases
Many of our clients facing shoplifting or petty theft charges are juveniles. We believe a mistake committed while in high school or early college years should not affect a person’s entire future. As a result, we are committed to helping juveniles move forward from the incident. Our primary objective is to try to arrange less severe punishment and obtain an expungement after the necessary conditions have been met.
In juvenile cases, intervention by a lawyer should start as soon as the juvenile is arrested or cited. Many cases can be resolved before the case goes before the court!
