What am I facing if convicted of shoplifting?

The most significant consideration the court will review when determining the sentencing for shoplifting is the total value of the property that was taken.

Criminal penalties for shoplifting can include:

  • Less than $1,000: 1 year imprisonment and a $1,000 fine
  • $1,000- $3,000: 4 years' imprisonment and a fine of $5,000 or double the shoplifted amount
  • $3,000- $50,000: 7 years' imprisonment and a fine of $5,000 or double the taken amount
  • $50,000- $1 million: 15 years' imprisonment and a fine of $5,000 or double the stolen amount
  • Greater than $1 million: 25 years' imprisonment and a $5,000 fine or double the taken value

In addition to this sentencing, the accused can find themselves being sued by the merchants of the store that property was taken from. They can legally sue for $1,500 if the product is not recovered or re-sellable.
