New Jersey’s Municipal Courts have taken a very tough stance on shoplifting and theft. Both of these offenses, if charged at the municipal level because they involve less then $200, are punishable by up to 180 days in jail and a fine of up to $1000.
The Law Offices of Joel Silberman has successfully defended a plethora of shoplifting and theft related cases. Our results have included dismissals for numerous clients as well as negotiated agreements in which our clients have avoided a criminal record.
