    Laws - View Law: SHOPLIFTING

    Shoplifting is more than just leaving a store with something you did not pay for. Shoplifting is also obtaining goods by charging the purchase price of an item to a fictitious person; paying less than the purchase price of the item by changing the labels in some way; moving the item to a different container; and hiding the item in some way from view. (A.R.S. § 13-1805).

    If you are a minor, your parents or legal guardian can be held responsible for any damages that you caused. (A.R.S. § 12-661). Shoplifting property with a value of more than $2,000 is a class 5 felony. Shoplifting with a value of less than $250.00 is a class 1 misdemeanor.

    If you are found guilty of shoplifting, you could be fined, have to perform community service, or be placed on probation with up to one year in detention. (A.R.S. § 13-1805) If found guilty of shoplifting you might also be required to pay a penalty of $100.00 in addition to the actual damages to the owner (the price of what you took). (A.R.S. § 12-692)

    hello; myname is edith, i think that if you had stolen something from anywhere, you should give it back, and they shouldnt ground you because you recognize what you did;and that it was wrong, and that means that you wont do it again...well this is my most sincerely opinion u_______U

    I have never stole in my life and I am studying to be a Psychologist, words of wisdom: Stop being so immature and stupid. Grow up, what yous steal is NOT WORTH IT in the long run. To all of you asking "What next" - Crime is a punishable by law offense. You'll all seek fines, jail time, yes it goes on your permanent record; you'll all be finding out soon that your 20$ to 500$ worth of stealing was NOT worth it. Get yourself a JOB and buy what you want, CRIME DOES NOT PAY. Even if you get away with it sometimes; you will EVENTUALLY get caught. Good luck to you all, you'll need it.

    I hate to admit this but I was arrested in October for shoplifting $30 worth of food from a local supermarket here in Northern Arizona , paid restitution of $280 the following day and had to appear in court on October 16th where I pleaded no contest ! I now have to appear before the judge on Nov. 18th , I wonder should I have a court appointed lawyer with me ? I would hate to have a sentence of jail time , first of all I have heart trouble (angina pains sever) and I am also a care giver to my 85 year old mother !
