What Are The Penalties For Shoplifting?
When a person is accused of stealing merchandise that is less than $950, they can be charged with shoplifting, also known as larceny or petty theft. Shoplifting is typically a misdemeanor in California. You may face up to six months in jail and ordered to pay $250 in fines. Previous shoplifting convictions can heighten the penalties. If a person steals merchandise that is valued at $950 or above, they may be charged with a felony and face, face a longer jail sentence and heftier fines.
With countless results obtained in shoplifting cases for our clients, we have proven that we can pose defense strategies that work. Prosecutors must show that you had the intent to steal and that it was you who stole the item. You may have been mistakenly identified or lacked intent — and we can prove it.
