Shoplifting in Georgia

The crime of shoplifting can be a misdemeanor or felony in Georgia, dependent on the amount of merchandise involved.

  • Misdemeanor shoplifting — Involving goods of up to $300

If an individual has been convicted of shoplifting in the past, any subsequent shoplifting convictions may be classified as felony crimes.

Juveniles Accused of Shoplifting

At M. Qader A. Baig, LLC, we defend juveniles accused of shoplifting. In Georgia, the juvenile court requires that all parties act "in the interest" of the child before the Court. With that in mind, we are focused on helping a child overcome a shoplifting charge and get back on the right track. Instead of an embarrassing run-in with the law, his may be an opportunity to turn adversity into opportunity.

Accused of Shoplifting for the First Time?

If you have been accused of shoplifting for the first time, you may be able to avoid some of the consequences of a conviction by entering a "pre-trial diversion program". If completed, you may be able to avoid jail and a mark on your criminal record. We can help you explore the pre-trial diversion program as an option in your case.

Attorney M. Qader A. Baig and the group he surrounds himself with is unmatched in Georgia. His years of experience are easily witnessed with how he handles himself in and out of the office. He is kind and genuine and a lion in the courtroom. If you need the best, no need to look further. His staff is just as amazing as he is.

I spoke with Mr. Qader, he was extremely helpful. He listened to my concerns and didn’t rush me with speaking. I had experiences with other attorneys that wouldn’t listen to a complete sentence and interrupt because they were pressed for time. He was patient and shown concerned. Mr. Qader didn’t make me feel like I was just another client. Thank you.
