There are a great number of retail establishments throughout the Third Municipal District and whenever a theft occurs, the local police departments are typically notified. Loss Prevention Departments are generally part of larger chain stores. Agents in these departments, along with store employees, become important witnesses in the prosecution of Retail Theft cases since arresting officers rarely witness the act itself. A large number of Retail Theft arrests heard at Rolling Meadows occur at the Woodfield Shopping Mall located in Schaumburg.Retail Theft Defense
In many cases, there is video surveillance of the alleged crime. As your defense attorneys, we always issue a subpoena for this evidence to help us determine whether or not the allegation of Retail Theft can be challenged, or if it is a case better suited for a negotiated plea. In other instances, the testimony of the Loss Prevention Agent and/or store employee is the primary evidence used to prosecute these charges. A thorough evaluation of all relevant evidence will be required to determine the most appropriate defense strategy in your case.
Our defense lawyers may achieve a deferred prosecution agreement with the State if the defendant has a minimal or non-existent criminal record. In these instances, the State makes a recommendation that the client complete certain conditions, and the client is then ordered to return a few months later to show the Court proof of completion of those conditions. Upon proof of completion, a complete dismissal of charges is entered. Of course, this is a very favorable outcome, which would allow for the expungement of the arrest record when a dismissal of these charges is entered.Contact Us
