Shoplifting Increases During The Holidays

Law Offices of William W. Bruzzo

If you “Google” the phrase “shoplifting during the holidays” you will find hundreds of news items from across the country discussing how shoplifting increases during the holiday season. Not surprising, the number of shoplifting arrests increases as well. Here is video from WBKO which discusses how one major US retailer, TARGET, deals with shoplifters.

If you find yourself or a family member being accused of shoplifting (petty theft), remember retaining legal counsel is very important. Here is one client’s experience.

“I was charged with Penal Code Section 488 (Petty Theft). I was alleged to have taken items worth $415.00 from a store without paying. I hired Attorney William W. Bruzzo to represent me in this matter. My most important concern was keeping my record clean. After I hired Mr. Bruzzo he made the appearances in court without my being present. Prior to my hiring Mr. Bruzzo I learned that he is extremely familiar with the District Attorneys in Orange County and this permits him to get better results for his clients. After Mr. Bruzzo made several appearances in court without my being present, he was able to negotiate a DISMISSAL with the District Attorney once I completed community service and other requirements. I truly believe that without Mr. Bruzzo’s knowledge of the courts and the District Attorneys in Orange County I would not have had such a favorable result. I highly recommend Mr. Bruzzo for any Petty Theft or criminal matter.” ~~ AL, May 14, 2009
