Penalties for Shoplifting Charges
Shoplifting may seem like a minor offense, but the penalties for this crime are serious. If you are convicted of shoplifting you may face significant fines and jail time. The penalties correspond to the value of stolen goods:
- Less than $1,000: Up to 180 days in jail and fines up to $1,000.
- Between $1,000 and $7,500: A jail sentence of 6 to 12 months and up to $2,500 in fines.
- Between $7,500 and $150,000: A jail sentence of 6 to 18 months and up to $5,000 in fines.
- Between $150,000 and $750,000: A jail sentence of 1 to 5 years and up to $10,000 in fines.
- Between $750,000 and $1.5 Million: A jail sentence of 2 to 8 years and up to $15,000 in fines.
- $1.5 Million or more: A jail sentence of 3 to 10 years and up to $20,000 in fines.
Most people charged with shoplifting do not steal anything close to the amounts described above. However, all but one of those charges are considered felonies rather than misdemeanors. If you have been accused of stealing more than $1,000 in goods, you will be charged with a felony. When you face serious charges, you need serious defense.
