Although unfortunate, crimes do occur and as a society we have to come to terms with the fact that everyone has the right to defend their freedom and to seek justice under the law. Theft, shoplifting and burglary crimes are serious offenses that should be met with serious representation. The penalties in Illinois for theft can be severe and seeking the representation of an experienced criminal defense attorney is in your best interest.
