Shoplifting

Have you, a friend, or a loved one been arrested and charged with Shoplifting?

If you’ve been arrested for shoplifting, you should take action right away. Texas takes theft offenses seriously, and you could be facing time in jail or extensive fines. With an experienced theft crime lawyer, you can fight your charges and defend your reputation.

Potential Charges for Crimes of Shoplifting

Shoplifting may seem like a minor offense, but Texas does not see it this way. Their laws are strict and penalties are based on the amount of property that was stolen. Classifications of this crime range from Class C misdemeanors all the way up to first-degree felonies.

You could be charged with the following:

  • Class C misdemeanor: Fines up to $500
  • Class B misdemeanor: Jail time up to 180 days and/or fines up to $2,000
  • Class A misdemeanor: Jail time up to 1 year and/or fines up to $4,000
  • Third degree felony: Jail time between 2-10 years and fines up to $10,000
  • Second degree felony: Jail time between 2-20 years and fines up to $10,000
  • First degree felony: Jail time between 5-99 years and fines up to $10,000

In addition, you may also be sued by the person you shoplifted from, which can add additional fines to your existing penalties. In Texas, pretrial diversion programs are available for first-time offenders so as to avoid prosecution. The alternatives include completing a probationary period, as well as community service and counseling.
