Defenses to Shoplifting Charges
Shoplifting is, at minimum, a misdemeanor. The law defines it the act of
willfully taking products from a store without paying for them. One does
not have to take the items out of the store to be considered guilty of
shoplifting. For example, the law also extends the definition to switching
price tags or hiding the goods as shoplifting.
You could face the following penalties for a shoplifting charge:
- Jail time or imprisonment
- Substantial fines
- Restitution to store owners
- Mandatory community service hours
- Civil lawsuits filed against you
Store owners may choose to file lawsuits against a person to gain whatever
losses they suffered as a result of shoplifting. If you have not already,
you must obtain legal representation now for and fight the possibility
of conviction. Our
Broken Arrow theft crimes lawyers can help get you there.
