Retail Theft

Chicago Retail Theft Defense Lawyer

Illinois law punishes theft severely: a theft of money or merchandise valued at only $300 is punishable by one to three years in jail. Theft accusations, whether large or small, can turn your life upside down and jeopardize your future. If you have been charged with retail theft anywhere in the Greater Chicago metropolitan area, you can rely on the Fabbrini Law Group to provide an effective defense.
