Winnipeg Criminal Defence Lawyer Joshua Rogala deals with charges of Shoplifting and Theft.

 

Have you been Charged with a Theft?

shopliftingWhile the offence of theft under $5000 or “shoplifting” is a relatively minor offence, being found guilty can have a significant impact on a person’s future employment opportunities and travel.

In circumstance where you accidentally left the store without paying for an item, the Crown Attorney may still decide to prosecute you. In some cases, you may have believed you had the right to an item when in law you did not. This is called “colour of right” and provides a possible defence to a theft charge.

Joshua has experience representing clients charged with theft. He may be able to convince the Crown Attorney to withdraw the charge or have the charges diverted. At trial, Joshua will ensure your side of the story heard before the Judge makes their decision.
