Every month, as we put together blog posts to help our clients, we try to find out what they’re searching – that way, we can reach people and give them the guidance they need when they’re charged with a crime in Milwaukee.
With the holidays right around the corner, we thought that a few posts on shoplifting and retail theft would be a good choice – and what we discovered was that on average, 10 people per month in Milwaukee are actually searching Google for “best stores to shoplift.”
If that’s what brought you here, don’t search that term any more. There are no best stores to shoplift – you’ll get caught no matter where you try to shoplift, and you’ll build yourself a criminal record that’s going to follow you around for the rest of your life.
And if you’ve already found what you thought were the best stores to shoplift and you got busted, here’s what you do next.
What to Do After You Get Busted Shoplifting in Milwaukee
When you get caught shoplifting, police will put you in handcuffs – in front of everyone – and haul you down to the police station. You’ll be questioned and charged with a crime, and then you’ll have to go to court and tell the judge whether you plead guilty or not guilty.
The best way to try to salvage what happened is to get in touch with a shoplifting defense attorney who can be there while police are questioning you and represent you when it’s time to go before the judge. Your lawyer will ask you several questions about what happened, and he or she will build a defense that gets you the best possible outcome.
