Question: What will happen to an underage shoplifter? My daughter was caught stealing from a store in Encino and has a court date at Van Nuys Court in June.

Answer: That depends on lot of circumstances. First, how strong is the case against her? She may have plausible defenses to get the charge dismissed. Secondly, what is the amount of the alleged theft? That can make a difference of whether you are charged with petty theft, or grand theft. Contact me at 818-336-1384 to discuss your case in more detail. I have had success in getting theft charges dismissed and have handled theft charges in Van Nuys Court.
