Let Our Mesa Criminal Defense Lawyers Protect Your Child’s Rights & Future

In many cases, well-behaved and law-abiding minor children are pressured into stealing. Unfortunately, whatever caused the juvenile to steal won’t matter to the prosecution and judge, and the offender will face the legal consequences associated with theft crimes in Arizona.

If your child has been charged with a misdemeanor or a felony in Mesa, Chandler, Gilbert, Scottsdale, Tempe, or Phoenix, Naegle Law Firm are prepared to help them decrease their penalties and protect their future. Our experienced legal team has won numerous awards throughout the years, including National Trial Lawyers: Top 40 Under 40.

Juvenile Theft Laws & Penalties

Juvenile shoplifting is considered petty theft and is typically charged as a misdemeanor in Arizona. Penalties that a juvenile shoplifter can expect to receive include restitution to repay the store owner the full amount of the stolen property, probation that lasts six months, as well as counseling and diversion.

If the stolen property is worth $1,000 or more, then it is considered a felony offense. As the value of the stolen goods increase, so does the severity of the penalties.

If the charge is extremely severe, such as armed robbery, the juvenile offender may be tried as an adult – especially if the offender is close to turning 18. When a minor is tried in adult court, they face the same penalties as an adult offender would in the same scenario.
