What is going to happen if I’m charged with shoplifting?
I had a client call recently who was charged with shoplifting in Georgia. Shoplifting can be a felony, but it can also be a misdemeanor. If it is under $500, it’s a misdemeanor; if it’s over $500, it is a felony. If it’s under $500, the punishment is up to 12 months in jail, and up to a $1,000 fine. There also may be some restitution depending on the situation.
The felony charges have increased and enhanced punishments. If you’re charged with shoplifting currently, please call me. I’ll talk with you about your individual circumstance and assist you in your case.
