Retail Stores Are Now Using Facial Recognition to Catch Shoplifters

In the last couple of years, many retail stores have been incurring huge losses resulting from shoplifting. However, with the new technology of using cameras with high quality face-recognition, they have been able to identify shoplifters and, in several cases, big spenders. How does this works? When shopping, you are likely to see cameras snapping …

Retail theft can encompass more than just shoplifting

When we hear the term retail theft, we automatically envision people attempting to leave a store with something for which they did not pay, perhaps concealing a single item under their coat or brazenly walking out with a full shopping cart. While this is an accurate depiction, it fails to account for the various other …

Can you be arrested for contracting without a license? – II

Last week, our blog began discussing how home improvement projects are always underway at any given time in any given neighborhood here in Orlando.

From scientific data, marketing information and customer lists to business codes, technical blueprints and recipes, there is a host of business information that could properly be classified as “trade secrets.” Indeed, it’s safe to say that businesses assign a great value to this information, so much so that many have their employers execute non-disclosure agreements …

Understanding more about retail theft – II

Last time, our blog began examining what actions constitute shoplifting – otherwise known as retail theft – here in the state of Florida. To that end, we discussed how it must be proven by prosecutors that the accused 1) had the requisite intent of “depriving the merchant of possession, use, benefit, or full retail value,” …

Understanding more about retail theft

When it comes to shoplifting, there is an unfortunate adage that it is somehow a “victimless crime.” This couldn’t be any more untrue, however, as there are essentially two victims: the merchant who is deprived of their valuable goods and the shoplifter who faces very real consequences for their actions. In today’s post, the first …

Effective representation for minors facing theft charges

Now that kids across the state of Florida are on the verge of starting another school year, parents can finally breathe a sigh of relief. While some of this relief will certainly come from no longer having to make daily arrangements, the majority of it will come from the knowledge that their kids are in …

What happens when stolen property is found at a pawnshop? — II

Last week, we started discussing how the seemingly simple task of recovering stolen property from a pawnshop might not be quite as simple as most people think. That’s largely because state law mandates that pawnbrokers must be afforded an opportunity for a hearing, meaning law enforcement officials are not legally permitted to simply confiscate the …
