There are many different types of theft, and depending on the value of the items you are charged with stealing, you will face varying degrees of penalties. Shoplifting is a common theft crime that involves not paying the full price of an item in a store. You could be charged with this crime for taking merchandise without paying, switching the price tag on an item in order to pay less, or by committing similar actions. If the values of the items you have been charged with stealing total less than $1,500, then you will face misdemeanor penalties upon conviction. These penalties can include a fine of $500 or up to a year in jail with a fine of up to $4,000.
If you are charged with a felony theft crime, then you could face penalties of up to 2 years in jail with a fine of up to $10,000 for a state felony.
