  • You might get a "slap on the wrist" depends on the judge. I believe the cut-off between misdemeanor and felony offense is around $200.00 in most states - meaning you may get jail time. Being your first offense that most likely will be waived for probation - probation is a real B@#$! to do you have to keep your nose very, very clean if you know what I mean. I know too many folk who messed up on probation and got more time in the end. Most likely a restitution fee will be called into play which may be a thousand or so dollars. Community service is becoming a replacement for jail time since jails are over crowded - of course that depends on where you live.
  • Probably just a slap on the wrist...u may just end up paying a fine or having to do probation! If you get a choice choose the fine because probation is a beast from what i have seen!!
  • If you didn't want this on your record, then you shouldn't have risked it in the first place!!! But, like Athrael said, you will probably just get a slap on the wrist. I would guess that the worst that you would get would be a small fine and community service. You could always call a lawyer that offers free advice, and see what they say! If you are a teenager this link explaines possible punishment per a lawyer: http://www.onlinelawyersource.com/criminal_law/shoplifting/teen.html If you are an adult: http://www.onlinelawyersource.com/criminal_law/shoplifting/effects.html I thought these pics wwere funny!
  • It's a misdemeanor, which means you WON'T be put on probation (probation is reserved for felonies), but you will have to pay court costs, fines, restitution, and may be sentenced to something like 5 days in jail. Usually for a first offense they will suspend the jail time on the condition that you keep out of trouble for a year. If you end up back in that same judge's courtroom before your year is up, you may very well end up serving the suspended sentence.

  • Believe it or not, 360 people in the state of California are in prison for life for shoplifting: http://www.abanet.org/irr/hr/winter04/shoplifting.html Get a good lawyer.
  • You have no choice about it getting on your records. Nobody wants a criminal record, but if you've done something like that it's bound to get on your records, first offence or not. Sorry, Anonymous, but that's the way it is.
