Do Not Take Shoplifting And Burglary Charges Lightly

Even a single misdemeanor conviction on your record can negatively affect your employment opportunities, prevent you from obtaining educational loans and have other consequences on your life. At my firm, M. Darin Vance, Attorney at Law, I am prepared to defend you against shoplifting or theft charges in DeSoto County and throughout northern Mississippi.

Under Mississippi law, shoplifting can be prosecuted as a misdemeanor or a felony depending upon the value of what is allegedly taken. Whether the accused is an adult or a juvenile, it is important to have knowledgeable legal counsel in your corner to minimize the impact of the charges you face.

I represent juveniles who face criminal charges in Mississippi youth court. If your child has been accused of a crime, call 662-469-5829 to schedule a consultation with a lawyer who provides personalized legal guidance at reasonable rates.
