Theft & Property Crimes Archives

Accused of shoplifting? You do not deserve to be assaulted.

What happens to defendants who are accused of stealing from a retail store? If you have heard about a shoplifting defendant who was harmed during a "takedown" by a retail employee, you are not alone - but is that kind of treatment really legal? The fact is that too many New York business owners take matters into their own hands when they are dealing with shoplifters, often violating defendants' rights when it comes to property crimes prosecution.
