Occasionally, there is a misunderstanding and false charges are brought against innocent and good people. The chances of getting a retail theft or shoplifting charge reduced to a less serious offense or dismissed depends greatly on the experience of the Chicago Retail Theft Attorney representing you. In Illinois, theft is prosecuted under 720 ILCS 5/16-1. A person commits the offense of theft when he or she knowingly obtains or exerts unauthorized control over the property of the owner or obtains control over the property through deception or threat. Additionally, you can be charged with theft if you possess stolen property and know the property was stolen.”
