Misdemeanor Level Charges
If an individual gets caught taking merchandise without paying the retail
value, tampering with anti-theft devices, or committing another act that
would equate the merchant not receiving the full value of the merchandise,
he or she can be arrested for shoplifting. If the value of the merchandise
is $300 or less, the charge would be considered a Class A Misdemeanor
and, if convicted, the defendant could face up to $2,500 in fines and
up to a year in prison.
There are numerous factors that could cause a shoplifting charge to be
considered a felony level offense. If the shoplifter took merchandise
with a value over $300, has a previous history of theft crimes, or used
an emergency exit to commit the crime, he or she could be facing a felony
charge. Our Mount Prospect retail theft lawyer has represented numerous
clients who have faced serious, felony-level offenses.
