Topic: Retail Theft Cases in Gurnee Illinois (Waukegan Courthouse)

Question: Does Gurnee have a deferred prosecution program for retail theft cases?

Answer: No. Gurnee does not at this time offer a deferred prosecution for retail theft cases.

Gurnee and the municipalities located there do not offer a formal deferred prosecution program for retail theft cases at this time. However, with the help of an experienced attorney, you do have some options to keep your record free of a retail theft conviction. A few of these options follow below.

Option #1

Your attorney may be able to negotiate an agreement with the state for a charge reduction to a trespass or disorderly conduct charge. These charges do not come with the stigma associated with a retail theft conviction.

Option #2

Your attorney may be able to negotiate a plea agreement for supervision. If this is the case, no conviction will be entered on your record and the case will be Eli bilge for expungement in the future.

Option #3

This is the option our office pursues on most cases. Often times, the prosecutor will be willing to dismiss the charges of retail theft against you in return for some minimal community service performance. The dismissal is always the best option.

It is critical to avoid the retail theft charge from being entered on your record. It is highly detrimental to employment options. Be sure to retain an attorney before appearing in court on any retail theft charge.
