In Virginia, the difference between a felony and a misdemeanor is that the goods must be worth more than $200 for the crime to be considered a felony. In this day and age, $200 worth of merchandise can easily fit in your hand. Personal electronics like cellphones, tablets, laptops and other computer equipment can add up quickly. If you have been charged with shoplifting, it is important to start your defense as soon as possible.

At the law office of John A. March, Attorney at Law, I have defended hundreds of clients in Richmond against a wide array of offenses.
