Shoplifting And Other Misdemeanor Offenses

Conviction for a first-time or misdemeanor theft offense does not mean the court is simply going to slap you on the wrist and send you on your way. You risk having to pay a fine, pay restitution and potentially serve jail time. A first-time or misdemeanor theft conviction also damages your record.

Felony Or Repeat Theft Offenses

If you have a history of previous theft convictions or you are currently facing felony theft charges, the court can potentially sentence you to a substantial fine, restitution and several years' imprisonment upon conviction. You also risk substantial damage to your reputation and job prospects if convicted.
