Penalties for Retail Theft and Shoplifting
The minimum and maximum limits of imprisonment are 90 days and 7 years, respectively. The imprisonment time depends on the value of the property stolen and whether it’s the first, second or third offense.
If this is the first time, you may be eligible for Accelerated Rehabilitation Disposition (ARD).This program allows you to avoid jail time and clear the theft conviction from records, permitted you fulfill all requirements and conditions.
ARD is available only for people who are charged with committing a non-violent crime. The worst ARD cases involve Retail Theft and driving under the influence (DUI) charges.
Once a person completes this program, the charges are cleared from the record. It is essentially a second chance for a clean record. Your ARD Attorney will determine your eligibility for the program.
Whether using the ARD program or not, you always get our best. We will defend aggressively against the charge, represent all facts related to the offense, and provide optimal legal strategy for winning your case.
