Shoplifting in Florida can cause serious criminal consequences

Theft can be a very serious crime, depending on the value of the allegedly stolen items. Florida has a lot of laws on the books that deal with theft, and shoplifting is covered by specific laws targeting retail theft. Generally speaking, the charges a person will face after shoplifting will vary, depending on the amount of merchandise and whether that person has a previous criminal record involving theft or shoplifting.

If you're facing extradition, you need a defense attorney now

People travel all of the time for both business and pleasure. The more you travel, the less likely you are to carefully investigate laws and cultural issues at a destination.

Maybe it was a youthful mistake involving drugs or alcohol at a party. Whatever the reason, when your teenager is facing criminal charges in Florida, you need to take it seriously.
