Arrested for Shoplifting or Petty Theft?

Generally speaking, the crime of shoplifting involves taking a small piece of merchandise while pretending to be a store customer. While shoplifting is generally thought of as a petty crime, it can actually result in serious criminal allegations. As a rule, the value of the alleged stolen merchandise will determine the severity of the charges held against you. For example, stealing a candy bar and stealing a piece of jewelry are both forms of shoplifting, technically, but the similarities in how their related criminal cases progress end there.

In California, the crime of "petty theft" is punishable by:

  • $1,000 fine
  • 6 months in a county jail

According to California Law, a crime is only considered petty theft if the suspect took an item worth less than $50. This crime is typically considered a misdemeanor. If you have been accused of petty theft or another theft crime, contact the Law Offices of Jacqueline Goodman in Fullerton today.

Her goal is to always win, whether this involves an acquittal or dismissal of the case. There might even be a way to reduce the severity of the charges against you, ensuring any penalties are minimized and make the smallest disruptions to your day-to-day life as possible.
